The Python Software Foundation announced today that Mitch Kapor will be the opening keynote speaker for their second US Python community conference next March.
Mr. Kapor is well known as a co-founder of Lotus Development Corporation and as a co-founder and the first chairman of the San Francisco-based Electronic Freedom Foundation, and has been an active entrepreneur in information technology for many years.

PyCon is a community-oriented conference for developers of Python applications and for those with an interest in the development of the Python programming language. It offers the opportunity to learn about significant advances in Python's uses and 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.
Pycon DC 2004 will be held March 24-26, 2004 in Washington, D.C. There will be a four-day development sprint before the conference.
