Does PyTexas offer any financial support for speakers?

PyTexas is a community driven, volunteer-supported, not-for-profit conference with an “everybody pays” policy. This means that we ask everyone to purchase a ticket, and offer financial support to anyone that needs it, regardless of whether they are a speaker or not. If you have a talk accepted, and do not need financial aid in order to attend, you will need to purchase a ticket and provide your own accommodations.
