    Coming to PyCon 2006 in Dallas in a few weeks? Want to make a name for
    yourself before you arrive? Think Django is cool and want everyone else to
    know it?

    Whip up a Django app to slide into the PyCon website (already running Django
    in part) that hooks into Google's Map API. Provide a way for conference
    attendees to stick virtual pins on where they are from (and perhaps leave a
    popup note for others to find ;-).

    There are already 350 people signed up, so your application must scale that
    far. The PyCon website already runs PostgreSQL or store the data in a local
    file of some flavor, your choice, but make sure its reasonably CPU
    efficient. The trick is to provide a user API for attendees to enter or
    mark their origin. Must be themable to drop into the site's existing layout.

    You only have until Feb 22 to implement it, and achieve glory. The
    conference website is at http://us.pycon.org. Drop me a line if you have
    questions to get your finished application installed on the conference server.

    (offer includes fame only, no fortune).

    -Jeff

    P.S. Can't make it to PyCon this year? Hey, you too can write the app and
    let'm know what they missed!
