EuroPython: Coming Soon
EuroPython is the official community conference for Python Programmers across Europe. This year it is being held in the Birmingham Conservatoire, where previous UK Python events and some recent UKUUG events have been held. We are expecting 300-400 delegates from across Europe. However, there will be many familiar faces as several of the conference organisers and speakers are UKUUG members.
The first two days, Sunday 28th June 2009 and Monday 29th June 2009, are tutorial days, including an introductory tutorial for those who have never programmed in Python before.
The main conference, from the 30th June to 2nd July, has talks from the leading Python programmers from across Europe. Speakers include Professor Sir Tony Hoare, Cory Doctorow, Jim Hugunin, Bruce Eckel, Simon Willison, Christian Tismer, Emily Bache, Stani Michiels and Michael Foord. Tutorial and talk abstracts are available on our website: http://www.europython.eu
The final two days, the 3rd and 4th of July, are 'sprint' days, where delegates splint into groups for collaborative computer programming, improving open source Python software.
Altogether, the conference consists of over one hundred talks, tutorials, plenary sessions and social events. To come for the whole week costs 290 pounds, but our booking form allows you to book for the parts you want, see http://www.europython.eu/registration/ for more details. There is also a concessionary rate which applies to over 60s, full-time students, unwaged and nurses.
