Registration for PyCon 2008 is now open.  Held in Chicago March 14-16 with
"Tutorial Thursday" on March 13 and sprints afterwards, it is expected that
nearly 800 Python enthusiasts will attend at least part of the conference.
It is totally run by volunteers and is affordable for just about anyone.  I
would like to point out the tutorial sessions being offered; all the way
from "Python for the Absolute Beginner", to advanced courses on optimizing
Python programs (with 27 more classes in between).  Click on over to
http://us.pycon.org/2008/about/  for information about the conference.  Here
is a list of the classes being offered along with the instructors scheduled
to present the classes (click to get more information on a session).  It's a
great way to learn more Python.
