Dear Python Colleague:
The PyCon Program Committee is happy to announce that the opening keynote speech, at 9:30 am on Wednesday March 23 will be:
Python on the .NET Platform, by Jim Hugunin, Microsoft Corporation
Jim Hugunin is well-known in the Python world for his pioneering work on JPython (now Jython), and more recently for the IronPython .NET implementation of Python.
Jim joined Microsoft's Common Language Runtime team in August last year to continue his work on Iron Python and further improve the CLR's support for dynamic languages like Python.
I look forward to hearing what Jim has to say, and hope that you will join me and the rest of the Python community at PyCon DC 2005, at George Washington University from March 23-25, with a four-day sprint starting on Saturday March 19.
