a single, 2-day Python track on Wednesday and Thursday including...
Steve Holden: The Best of PyCon
Michael Hudson: Error Handling with Recovery

...and of course lightning talks and BOFS will be welcome....
Friday will feature a Dynamic Languages track with in-depth talks on
to Python developers.
PRE CONFERENCE PYTHON TUTORIAL:
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....
ABOUT THE ACCU CONFERENCE
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.
