Output & Follow
Background of the new Theme - “Output & Follow”
We, PyCon JP 2017 staff, had been discussing the theme of PyCon JP 2017 since November 2016.
The PyCon JP 2017 staff organization selected a new chairperson, and accepted many new staff members to organize this year’s PyCon JP. At the beginning, we discussed "Stakeholder model", "Value analysis model" and "Value designed model". These models were examined during the PyConJP 2016 general staff meeting. With that examination, we solicited opinions regarding to the new theme for PyCon JP 2017 from all new staff members.
We also reconfirmed the concepts and themes up to PyCon JP 2016 and studied what kind of concept is good. Staff members also submitted new theme proposals and voted on them.
However, the theme we selected was actually not the one with the most votes.
The reason for this is as follows. There were many concept drafts with a large number of votes, such as “dialogue among participants”, “spreading”, “connecting”. The “Output & Follow” theme resonates with all of these concept drafts and is concrete, so we decided that it would be the most appropriate selection.
How to use the theme of PyCon JP 2017
Based on this theme, all the staff will do talk and plan selection.
PyCon JP is a conference where Python users, or people interested in Python, gather to learn from each other and meet other members of the community.
We hope that everyone joining PyCon JP will not only learn new and exciting things, but also meet new friends and strengthen the connection with the community, and thus the community itself.
Actually creating PyCon JP 2017 is not only the staff but also the "Output & Follow" of the speaker, the sponsor, each participant, and others.
Thank you for your cooperation.
