ANN: Vancouver Python Workshop - Talk deadline extended

Discussion in 'Python' started by Brian Quinlan, Jun 15, 2004.

  1. What's new?
    ===========

    The deadline for talk submission for the Vancouver Python Workshop has
    been extended until June 22nd. This is mainly due to schedule
    disruptions caused by the EuroPython conference but also because we are
    looking for a more diverse group of speakers i.e. not just Python
    luminaries.

    So far, we have received many interesting talk submissions, concerning:

    o Windows programming in Python
    o MacOS X programming in Python
    o Python IDE construction
    o Zope/Plone (custimization, working with DBs, debugging, etc.)
    o Python's future
    o Python programming techniques (optimization, constaints,
    blocks and views, etc.)
    o Pyrex
    o Prothon
    o Pygame
    o Twisted
    o Python in business

    Speakers include:

    o Guido van Rossum (the creator of Python)
    o Paul Everitt (co-founder of Zope Corp)
    o David Ascher (author of "Learning Python" & "The Python Cookbook")
    o Andy McKay (author of "The Definitive Guide to Plone")
    o Kevin Altis (wxPython & PythonCard developer)
    o Paul Prescod (core Python developer - XML libraries)
    o Trent Mick (core Python developer - logging & 64-bit port)

    But we would like more typical Python programmers to submit talks as
    well! To submit a talk, see:

    The revisted deadline for talk submission is June 22nd.
