The ACCU is once again hosting a UK Python Conference on the above dates 
at the Randolph Hotel in Oxford.  Sign up now.....


I am happy to announce that Guido van Rossum is once again a keynote 
speaker for the entire ACCU conference.   Following his keynote we have 
a single, 2-day Python track on Wednesday and Thursday including...

	Steve Holden: The Best of PyCon
	Michael Hudson: Error Handling with Recovery
	Phil Thompson: PyQT 4
	Michael Hudson: PyPy - a progress report
	Simon Willison: Django
	Remi Delon:  CherryPy and TurboGears
	Chris Withers: Templating systems
	Andy Robinson: Metadata and models in Python
	Andrew Thompson: Financial Programming in Python

...and of course lightning talks and BOFS will be welcome....

Friday will feature a Dynamic Languages track with in-depth talks on 
Javascript, Ruby and Groovy, which I am sure will be of great interest 
to Python developers.

John Pinner will be giving a full day "Python for Programmers" tutorial 
on Tuesday prior to the main event.  This tutorial is aimed at 
programmers who have no previous knowledge of Python but who would like 
to know more about it. If you want to convert your colleagues, this is 
where to send them....

For those not familiar with the event, the ACCU conference is one of the 
foremost gatherings of programming talent in the world, regularly 
featuring authors and major figures from the C/C++/C#/Java/Python and 
other communities.    The cheapest way to attend is to join the ACCU

This will be the LAST CHANCE to attend this fantastic event; after more 
than 5 years of being nurtured by the ACCU, the UK Python community will 
hopefully be organising a standalone conference in future years.  Python 
talks will continue to be welcome (and we hope numerous) on the ACCU 
programme, but not as an advertised "mini-conference"; instead we'll be 
shifting focus to dynamic languages in general.

Best Regards,

Andy Robinson
ACCU Conference Committee
