EuroPython 2016: Sending out the first gravitational waves

We are pleased to announce the launch of our all new EuroPython 2016 website. Over the last few weeks, we have been busy talking to sponsors and getting the website prepared for the launch.

You may have heard about the recent direct observation of gravitational waves by the LIGO (Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory). What you may not know is that Python helped in analyzing the data (, so we now have two things to celebrate:

  1. Python’s use in this phenomenal direct proof of Einstein’s prediction and
  2. the launch of our 2016 edition of the EuroPython conference.

So here it is:


Many thanks go to our launch sponsors who have signed up early to give us that extra boost in motivation to get the conference and it’s website set up.

Meet our Launch Sponsors

PS: We’d like to thank the EuroPython Web WG  for the web site improvements and our friends at Python Italia for making their code available.

With gravitational regards,

EuroPython 2016 Team
