PyCON is a community-oriented conference targeting developers (both
those using Python and those working on the Python project). It gives
you opportunities to learn about significant advances in the Python
development community, to participate in a programming sprint with
some of the leading minds in the Open Source community, and to meet
fellow developers from around the world. The organizers work to make
the conference affordable and accessible to all.
DC 2004 will be held March 24-26, 2004 in Washington, D.C. at the GWU
Cafritz Conference Center. The keynote speakers are Mitch Kapor, Guido
van Rossum, and Bruce Eckel. There will be a four-day development sprint
before the conference (March 20-23).
