2023 end-of-year PSF fundraiser
Thank you for contributing to the PSF! Your support means the world to us.
Every dollar you contribute to the PSF makes an impact and tells us you value Python and the work we do. Python and the PSF are powered by the generosity and energy of all our awesome community members like you who step up and give back.
We appreciate you and we’re so excited to see where we can go together in the year to come!
Highlights from 2023
- PyCon US - Our second hybrid PyCon US, in Salt Lake City and online, was an exhilarating success! It was great to see everyone again in 2023, and we’re grateful to all the speakers, volunteers, attendees, and sponsors who make it such a special event.
- Security Developer in Residence - Seth Larson joined the PSF earlier this year as our first ever Security Developer-in-Residence. Seth is already well-known to the Python community – he was named a PSF Fellow in 2022 and has already written a lot about Python and security on his blog.
- PyPI Safety & Security Engineer - Mike Fiedler joined the PSF earlier this year as our first ever PyPI Safety & Security Engineer. Mike is already a dedicated member of the Python packaging community–he has been a Python user for some 15 years, maintains and contributes to open source projects, and became a PyPI Maintainer in 2022. You can see some of what he’s achieved for PyPI already on the PyPI blog.
- Welcome, Marisa and Marie! - In 2023 we were able to add two new full time staff members to the PSF. Marisa Comacho joined as Community Events Coordinator and Marie Nordin joined as Community Communications Manager. We are excited to add two full time dedicated staff members to the PSF to support PyCon US, our communications, and the community as a whole.
- CPython Developer in Residence - Our CPython Developer in Residence, Łukasz Langa, continued to provide trusted support and advancement of the Python language, including oversight for the releases of Python 3.8 and 3.9, adoption of Sigstore, and stewardship of PEP 703 (to name a few of many!).
