GeoPython 2020 and COVID-19

We hope that everyone in our community is well, despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic spreading across Europe. The GeoPython and EuroSciPy organising committee have had to take the tough decision to cancel the conference for 2020. We examined the web-based options, however, were not satisfied that they would provide the conference experience that we would be proud of.
GeoPython will return in 2021, around August - please keep checking here and the website for additional updates. If you have already bought your ticket, then refunds are currently being processed, please let us know if you don’t receive yours within 4 weeks.
This decision was not taken lightly, however, the committee considered that we ought to take any steps necessary to contribute to slowing the spread of this disease.
Stay safe, hasta pronto and remember social distancing and to wash your hands.

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.
