In one week (Weds March 17), pre-registration for PyCON will close. Right now, you can register for $250. After that, you will need to register at the door, and the cost will be $300. Save yourself $50!
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).
