The 2020 PyCon Nigeria Conference will be going virtual for the first time because of the global COVID-19 pandemic. The event is billed to hold on Tuesday 8th - Wednesday 9th December 2020. Time is 10:00am - 4:00pm daily.

Despite being an online/virtual event, the Python Nigeria community has decided to set up viewing centers across the country to help people who will otherwise be unable to attend and watch the conference due to connection hardware and network difficulty, connect.

Our hub, at 11 Nicholas Street off Brass Junction Umungasi Aba has been selected as one of the national viewing centers. We shall be having the event projected on a large screen. This will not only enable viewers to participate in the conference but to also have a semi-in-house experience where they will meet other participants viewing at the center.

Other viewing centers include but not limited to:

EKET: AfricInnovate Technologies: 16, Uqua Road, Eket of Akwa Ibom State
Phone: 0815 886 8727

ABA: Ashpot: 11 Nicholas Street, Aba, Abia State
Phone: 0806 340 9307

UYO: Sifre Technologies: 5, Dominic Etuk (Brooks) Street, Uyo, Akwa Ibom State
Phone: 0706 706 2948


Our hub, having played host to lots of Python Abia Community events is pleased and proud to host this virtual event viewing center for the Python Nigeria community. Of course, all COVID-19 protocols have been put in place to ensure the safety of the people who will be watching the PyCon Nigeria Conference at our hub. We have also made some arrangements to make the experience a comfortable and favorable one by providing light refreshment.


Speaking on this development, the Chairperson Python Nigeria, Pius Okigbo, Jr said: " Part of this year’s theme is inclusion. We want everyone to be a part of the conference and we’re keen on making it easy for everyone who wishes to attend to do so. For this reason, we have set up viewing centers in three (3) strategic locations: ABA, EKET, and UYO. If you reside in these locations, do well to attend via our viewing centers,
