I fully agree and would also appreciate some "more serious"
content, that is less likely to be de-hyped within a year into 
meaninglessness... I'll ask some folks at the Institut Pasteur
right away if they can share some of their Python experience.

Also, please think of Michel Sanner who was also present in
Long Beach, CA... Marc, would you mind contacting him?
