[Web-SIG] Web Activities at EuroPython 2008?

It's not often that I find myself posting to the Web-SIG list these days, but
I find myself almost obliged to ask whether anyone is considering submitting
talk proposals about Web programming to the EuroPython 2008 conference (to be
held in Vilnius, Lithuania from 7th July until 9th July, with sprinting
possibilities from 10th July until 12th July).
In my monitoring of the Internet for mentions of EuroPython, I see that
there's a survey out there which is asking for opinions about a Zope
conference , with questions related to EuroPython. Last year, there were
quite a few Zope talks, although perhaps not at the level enjoyed when there
was a special Zope track at EuroPython. A few other Web-related technologies
did also get coverage in the schedule, however: FormEncode, Genshi, KSS,
Nevow, Pylons, Silva, WSGI, to name just a few.
Nevertheless, Web programming (including and beyond Zope) has always been a
major component of EuroPython, and it would certainly be interesting to see
talks describing what people are doing with Python on the Web, whether it be
the development of classic server-side Web applications, the usage of Python
on the client side, or even the management of infrastructure using Python -
large-scale computing is becoming an increasingly popular topic.
Anyway, details of talk submissions and other activities at the conference can
be found here:
And the EuroPython site can be found here:
Yes, it's running MoinMoin - a possibly unfashionable choice (and arguably
unpopular in certain circles) - but maybe even the MoinMoin developers might
consider sharing some of their insights on developing and customising
MoinMoin as a talk. ;-)
I look forward to seeing many talk submissions of a Web-related kind!
