About the organisers
The University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Switzerland FHNW ranks amongst Switzerland's leading and most innovative universities of applied sciences. It is composed of nine Schools covering Applied Psychology, Architecture, Civil Engineering and Geomatics, Art and Design, Life Sciences, Music, Teacher Education, Social Work, Engineering and Business. The modern campuses are in northwestern Switzerland, near the borders with Germany and France and in the immediate vicinity of the cities of Basel and Zurich, as well as of national and international companies.
PyBasel is the local Python User Group Northwestern Switzerland. The user group offers space and opportunity for all those interested in Python to share knowledge and learn about Python. The participants hold talks, share news, and provide help for both Python newbies and professionals.
About the location
Basel lies in the heart of Europe, on both banks of the Rhine. The city is the centre of the idyllic border triangle of France, Germany and Switzerland – lying between the Swiss Jura, Germany’s Black Forest and the Vosges in Alsace.
Basel is easy to get to. Only a 10-minute drive from the city centre, Basel’s EuroAirport is served by a number of international airlines. Together with neighbouring Zurich Airport, it enjoys connections to all European airports and to more than 200 intercontinental destinations.
Located in the centre of Europe, Basel is a major transportation hub. Its three railway stations not only offer excellent connections to far and wide but are also all situated in the very heart of the city.

Together with our local partner "Basel-Culture Unlimited", we have some very good hotel deals in Basel.

Python Community Code of Conduct
All attendees of the conference must agree and respect the "Python Community Code of Conduct":
The Python community is made up of members from around the globe with a diverse set of skills, personalities, and experiences. It is through these differences that our community experiences great successes and continued growth. When you're working with members of the community, we encourage you to follow these guidelines which help steer our interactions and strive to keep Python a positive, successful, and growing community.
A member of the Python community is:
Members of the community are open to collaboration, whether it's on PEPs, patches, problems, or otherwise. We're receptive to constructive comment and criticism, as the experiences and skill sets of other members contribute to the whole of our efforts. We're accepting of all who wish to take part in our activities, fostering an environment where anyone can participate and everyone can make a difference.
Members of the community are considerate of their peers -- other Python users. We're thoughtful when addressing the efforts of others, keeping in mind that often times the labor was completed simply for the good of the community. We're attentive in our communications, whether in person or online, and we're tactful when approaching differing views.
Members of the community are respectful. We're respectful of others, their positions, their skills, their commitments, and their efforts. We're respectful of the volunteer efforts that permeate the Python community. We're respectful of the processes set forth in the community, and we work within them. When we disagree, we are courteous in raising our issues.
Overall, we're good to each other. We contribute to this community not because we have to, but because we want to. If we remember that, these guidelines will come naturally.
