Sizes mostly range from small to XL. We have a few XXL. There is a limited
quantity available for all sizes for this first run as we gauge interest.
However, if sizes run out, I plan to take down names and get a second batch
going. Cash only for now.

>>    - *The 'collections' module*
>>    (0:10:00 Minutes)
>>    By: Phil Robare
>>    A quick overview of the collections module and its five data
>>    structures. The talk will be aimed at the intermediate level python user
>>    who has the basic syntax down but has not yet delved into the wealth of
>>    programming tools in the standard library.
>>    - *pyStan: Bayesian Inference for Fun and Profit*
>>    (0:30:00 Minutes)
>>    By: Stephen Hoover
>>    Probabilistic programming languages offer a flexible and expressive
>>    way to model data by treating random variables as first-class objects. Stan
>>    is a popular and well-supported library which allows users to write models
>>    in the Stan programming language and use MCMC methods to perform Bayesian
>>    inference. Stan itself is written in C++, and has a Python interface
>>    through the PyStan package. In this talk, I'll show off some of the
>>    capabilities of PyStan and go through a simple practical example of
>>    Bayesian inference in Python.
>>    - *Python, Startups, Tech Debt, and You*
>>    (0:20:00 Minutes)
>>    By: Matt Erickson
>>    There's a lot of people newish to Python and either interested or
>>    already in a startup environment (either within a larger corporation or an
>>    actual startup). Python makes a *great* tool for that, however while
>>    there’s ways to use it to carry your work along to great success, there’s
>>    ways to wind up with such spaghetti you’re tempted to throw your hands in
>>    the air and go back to Java. The focus on the talk is how to use Python and

>>    able to “cut corners” to get something out the door to make your
>>    boss/investors/customers happy.
>> Thanks always to all our Platinum sponsors, especially: Braintree,
