I generally concur. I have had a visceral dislike for certifications
for a long time now.

I do however see Aneesh's point. There is a difference between the
"tutorial" track (which is an intro to Python) and the other
conference tracks which are more technical. If a student has a
certificate at the end of a tutorial saying that he knows Python, it
*might* help with some employers.

It doesn't however fit into the overall scheme of a hacker conference
though (which is how I personally view this event).
