<h2>Welcome to the North Bay</h2>
 

	
 
<p>North Bay Python is a two-day, single-track Python conference held in the Mystic Theater in Petaluma, California, held over the weekend of December 2 &amp; 3, 2017.</p>
 

	
 
<p>We're a nonprofit conference for professionals, enthusiasts and students alike, focused on inclusion, accessibility, diversity, and affordability, with not only a great lineup of talks from all over the Python ecosystem but plenty of time to meet new people and develop new ideas too.</p>
 

	
 
<p>Our venue, the historic Mystic Theater in Downtown Petaluma, is not only a beautiful example of an early 1900s Vaudeville theatre, but is a short walk away from over fifty different food and drink options in Downtown Petaluma, as well as several different hotels, the closest of which is only a block away.</p>

  North Bay Python is a two-day, single-track Python conference held in the
 
  Mystic Theatre in Historic Downtown Petaluma, California, held over the
 
  weekend of December 2 &amp; 3, 2017.

  We're a nonprofit conference for professionals, enthusiasts and students
 
  alike; we're focused on inclusion, accessibility, diversity, and
 
  affordability; and we're planning a great lineup of talks from all over the
 
  Python ecosystem, with plenty of time to meet new people and
 
  develop new ideas too.

  Our venue, the historic Mystic Theatre in Downtown Petaluma, is a
 
  beautiful example of an early 1900s Vaudeville theatre, and it's a short walk
 
  away from over fifty different food and drink options in Downtown Petaluma,
 
  as well as several different hotels, the closest of which is only a block away.
 
</p>
 

	
 
<h2>The Conference</h2>
 

	
 
<p>North Bay Python is a single-track conference, with a carefully curated set of talks representing the truly diverse Python community and their different areas of interest. If a topic is less to your interest, or you've met some people you really want to sit down and chat with, we'll have plenty of areas away from the main theater to catch up and chat as well.</p>
 

	
 
<h2>The Location</h2>
 

	
 
<p>Petaluma is right in the middle of the beautiful scenery of the North Bay, and less than an hour's drive from San Francisco over the Golden Gate Bridge. The Mystic is not the only example of early 1900s architecture, either; downtown is full of historic buildings, as well as being at the center of thing things like the maker movement and a thriving craft brewery scene.</p>
 

	
 
<p>If you want to stay overnight, we have deals with local hotels - the closest one is just one block away. If you're driving up, Petaluma has plenty of free parking, and if you don't feel like driving, we'll be putting on a shuttle from public transport stops as well.</p>

<h2>Petaluma, California</h2>
 

	
 
<p>
 
  North Bay Python's home is Petaluma, a delightfully quaint dairy town,
 
  nestled on a river at the southern edge of California's Wine Country. We've
 
  got beautiful scenery right on our doorstep, and we're less than an hour's
 
  drive from San Francisco over the Golden Gate Bridge.

<h3>Getting here</h3>
 

	
 
<h4>By car</h4>
 

	
 
<p>
 
  If you're driving up, Downtown Petaluma is at exit 472 on Highway 101, 35
 
  miles north of the Golden Gate Bridge. All parking is free in Petaluma,
 
  including in the undercover garages at Keller St and Theatre Square, both
 
  are in short walking distance of the Mystic.
 
</p>
 

	
 
<h4>By bus</h4>
 

	
 
<p>
 
  Public transit to Petaluma is not great. You can take the 101 bus operated
 
  by Golden Gate Transit from downtown San Francisco, or south from Santa Rosa.
 
  Depending on sponsorship, we hope to run a free shuttle with BART and
 
  Caltrain connections for people from further out of town.
 
</p>
 

	
 
<h4>By plane</h4>
 

	
 
<p>
 
  If you're coming from out of the area, you may want to consider Sonoma County
 
  Airport (STS) &ndash; it's 30 minutess out of Petaluma, and has nonstop
 
  flights to most major west coast cities. If you can't make it to STS, you can
 
  also try San Francisco (SFO) or Oakland (OAK) international airports.
 
</p>
 

	
 
<h3>Staying here</h3>
 

	
 
<p>
 
  Petaluma, as well as being a place where people live, also has hotels! We're
 
  arranging deals with some of the best local hotels in the area &ndash; the
 
  closest is just one block away. We'll share details of our hotel deals with
 
  you when conference tickets go on sale.
