We know that the Python conference isn't until the next millennium.
You have exactly two weeks left to register and qualify for the early
bird registration.  Since most of that time most people are taking off
for the holidays, it's really NOW OR NEVER!  If you haven't registered
and paid by January 5, you will paying full price...  So, be smart and
register NOW.  Also don't forget to book your hotel room by January 3.

Some highlights from the conference program:

- 8 tutorials on topics ranging from JPython to Fnorb;
- a keynote by Open Source evangelist Eric Raymond;
- another by Randy Pausch, father of the Alice Virtual Reality project;
- a separate track for Zope developers and users;
- live demonstrations of important Python applications;
- refereed papers, and short talks on current topics;
- a developers' day where the feature set of Python 2.0 is worked out.

Our motto, due to Bruce Eckel, is: "Life's better without braces."

Come and join us at the Key Bridge Marriott in Rosslyn (across the
bridge from Georgetown), January 24-27 in 2000.  Make the Python
conference the first conference you attend in the new millennium!

The early bird registration deadline is January 5.  More info:


The program is now complete with the titles of all presentations.
There is still space in the demo session and in the short talks
