Hi everyone.

I'm pleased to announce that we are now accepting proposals for both 
regular and virtual posters for PyCon 2010 in Atlanta.

For full details and to submit a poster or virtual poster, please visit 

This will be a first time for poster sessions at this conference, with 
the idea largely arising from discussions that Steve Holden, Kirby and I 
had after last year's PyCon. Fortunately the PyCon organizers rather 
quickly decided that posters would add a valuable dimension to the 
conference's perennial theme "Connecting the Community" and we have 
strong support.

Among other things, posters will be a great way for educators and their 
students to get their feet wet with a less formal and more interactive 
PyCon presentation, and to share and get recognition for the work they 
are doing with Python.

If someone can't make it to the conference, we are also offering the 
chance to present a "virtual" poster, a recorded video of their poster 
presentation. Virtual posters will be played in rotation on a monitor 
during the conference posters sessions (assuming resources are 
available), and will be archived as part of the PyCon video stream.

So spread the word - all levels of the Python in/and/about/with 
Education communities (in fact, ALL Python communities!) are invited to 

Oh, yeah, if you have any questions or find any errors in the poster 
session pages, please let me know.

A bigger poster push will come with the announcement of the regular talk 
decisions, so here's your chance to get on board early. ;)

This time for sure!
