           Python Events Calendars - Now with Twitter feed

           maintained by the Python Software Foundation (PSF)
                    and a group of volunteers


As some of you may know, the PSF has put together a team of volunteers
who are maintaining a central Python events calendar. We currently have
two calendars in place:

 * Python Events Calendar - meant for conferences and larger gatherings
   focusing on Python or a related technology (in whole or in part)

 * Python User Group Calendar - meant for user group events and other
   smaller local events

The calendars are displayed on http://pycon.org/ and in a smaller
version in the sidebar of the http://python.org/ website.

You can subscribe to the calendars using iCal and RSS feeds and
also embed the calendar widgets on your sites. Please see our wiki
page for details:


The calendars are open to the world-wide Python community, so you
can have local user group events, as well as regional and international
conference events added to the calendars.


We have now created a Twitter feed for the calendars, which you can
follow to get updates on all newly added events:


The tweets come with links to the event listings, which you can
add to your own Google calendars with a single click.


If you want to have entries added to those calendars, please write
to events at python.org and include the following information:

 * Name of the event
 * Type of the event (conference, bar camp, user group, etc)
 * Focus on Python and approximate size
 * URL
 * Location and country
 * Date and time (if relevant)

For recurring events, please also include a description of the
recurrence in a way that's compatible and supported by Google


More information on the calendars, the URLs, feed links, IDs, embedding,
etc. is available on the wiki:
