About this event

PackagingCon is a conference for developers of software package management software, as well as software packagers and communities! PackagingCon is going to be a two-day virtual event with contributors from all over the world. Our mission is to bring different eco-systems together: from Python’s pip to Rust’s cargo, from Debian apt over Nix to conda and mamba, and from vcpkg to Spack we hope to have many different approaches to package management at the conference.

While PackagingCon has no costs for venue or catering, there are still costs associated with bringing the event online. Additionally, revenue from the event will be used for next year's conference and to support open source scientific computer programming through NumFOCUS, a nonprofit organization that sponsors 43 Open Source Projects, and organizes community-driven educational programs for users and developers of open source scientific tools.

For this reason, we have chosen to sell tickets with a pay-what-you-can pricing model.
