(With apologies if you have already seen this on another email list or newsgroup.)
The UK's first-ever Django conference will take place on the 7th-9th February 2014 in Cardiff, Wales.
The programme for the event:
Friday: tutorials and demonstrations (also open to the public)
Sunday: code sprints and clinics
The conference is Django-focused, but all of all aspects of Python fall within its remit - particularly in the tutorials and workshops.
A venue has been booked at Cardiff University.
Registration and ticket sales will open soon, as well as a call for papers.
To be a success, the conference needs the support of:
* people in Wales, the UK and beyond who will participate as attendees or volunteers
* speakers who'd like to give talks or conduct tutorials
* organisations locally and internationally willing to provide sponsorship or other support
If you can offer support in any of these capacities, please get in touch.
One of the aims of the conference is to establish it as an annual event that will raise the profile in Wales of open-source software in general and Python in particular, and also bolster the local open-source software community here.
Above all, however, the intention is to establish the Django Weekend in Cardiff as a meaningful and enjoyable date in the Django/Python calendar.
We'll publish updates on our website, our Twitter account <https://twitter.com/DjangoWeekend> and elsewhere as appropriate.
