Dear Python Colleague:
I am happy to say that we have now completed the PyCon DC 2005 keynote speaker lineup, and that the final keynote will be given by Greg Stein, an engineering manager wirh Google's Blogger group, who will be speaking on "Python at Google"
Greg is also known to many in the open source world as the chairman of the Apache Foundation, and he is a significant contributor to Subversion, WebDAV and Python.
With the opening keynote from a Microsoft speaker, the second keynote from Guido van Rossum (the inventor of Python) and the last keynote from Google, PyCon is beginning to demonstrate just how significant Python has become in the modern world of software and Internet services.
I hope you will join me in DC from March 23-25, and possibly attend the four-day sprint being held immediately before the conference. Pre- conference registration is available via
This is going to be a great opportunity for all those with an interest in Python to see just how far the language has come.
regards Steve Holden Chairman, PyCON DC 2005
