ADDISON, TX, November 30, 2006 - PyCon 2007, the fifth annual conference of
the Python community, will take place February 23-25 at the Dallas/Addison
Marriott Quorum hotel. The keynote speakers will include Ivan Krstić, from
the One Laptop Per Child project; Adele Goldberg, a developer of Smalltalk;
Robert M. Lefkowitz, an expert on the use of open source in business; and
Guido van Rossum, the creator of Python.

PyCon annually attracts hundreds of attendees interested in the open-source
Python language, ranging from novice programmers to developers of the
language core. This year's conference will include a record sixty-four
sessions, covering the use of Python in a broad range of contexts, such as
web development, testing, and cross-language integration; case studies in
industry, science, and education; and Python implementations for the Java
and .NET platforms.

The program will also include intensive half-day tutorials, impromptu Open
Space talks, Birds-of-a-Feather topical gatherings, and the ever-popular
five-minute Lightning Talks.  One new feature this year will be the Python
Lab, a collaborative, hands-on problem-solving environment. Following the
conference, many developers will stay for Sprints, extending the Python
language and Python projects through several days of intense, cooperative

PyCon is organized by members of the Python community, and made possible by
the Python Software Foundation and conference sponsors.
