A Train Full of Software Developers


I work on 20Skaters, ThreeFortyNine, Ontario Startup Train and a few others. My vanity site is brydon.me.

While it can be fun the first few trips, travelling for business and conferences generally sucks. It’s a necessary evil in order to get yourself to an awesome conference like PyCon. We’re hoping to fix that for a small group of people heading to PyCon in Montreal this year.

We’ve chartered our own VIA Rail train cars with first class service and we’re filling them with the Python community to travel from Toronto to this year’s PyCon in Montreal on April 10th. Why wait until you get to Montreal to start meeting and collaborating with the folks in the Python community? Travel time is only wasted when you do it alone.

Book your ticket on the Python On Rails train now before they’re gone.

We’re still planning our on-train activities but suffice to say you’ll have a chance to meet a ton of great people like yourself while making the pilgrimage to PyCon. Our activities will be focused on getting you connected with our other passengers and we’ll have lot’s of time to socialize on our own private bar car.

The valuable connections made on our previous StartupTrain trips have resulted in new jobs, consulting gigs and even cofounders meeting and launching new startups together. Our passengers for this year’s Python On Rails are already getting to know each other in a private online space we’ve setup for them to collaborate before, during and after PyCon.
