PyCon Zimbabwe is organized by volunteers and python enthusiasts from the python programming community in Zimbabwe.

The first PyconZim was held from 24th – 25th November 2016, at the Zesa National Training Centre. It brought delegates and speakers from the USA, South Africa, Namibia and Zimbabwe. The second edition of PyConZim is also expected to bring speakers from Africa and the rest of the world and is expected to run longer as we have added two more days. It will also be held at the ZESA National Training Centre from the 23rd – 26th August 2017.

This is a four-day conference that aims to increase the visibility of developers. It brings together people of different knowledge and skill levels in Python. Talks, tutorials, and coding exercises are conducted during the conference to share the knowledge around the people. They also host Django girls  –  a free workshop hosted during the conference, which is aimed at empowering girls through Python. PyCon and ZimboPy work together closely during this workshop to teach girls how to code.
