The PyCon UK Society has announced a UK Python Conference. This is an affordable community conference taking place on 8th/9th September. The conference is fantastic value, especially if you take advantage of the extra early bird booking offer. Both new and experienced Python programmers will benefit from the varied programme.

Why am I posting about this? I'd personally like to invite UK pythonistas to come, share their knowledge with others, learn new things and hang out. It's a community conference, which means it has the following characteristics:

  • You can help make it amazing, by participating & speaking, by helping, by attending!
  • It is cheap
  • It will be fun, and accessible. We (I'm helping organise this :) ) really want the conference to be accessible to all, from those who have no idea of what python is, let alone coded in it, through to those who are working on their upteenth bytecode hack/compiler.
Seriously though aside from this, I'm really posting about this because despite being a language pragmatist - ie I'll use any language that gets the job done - I'm largely finding that I'll use python for almost everything these days. Community conferences are a real opportunity to dive in and help and learn and share. Like python itself, the conference is also platform agnostic, so you're welcome if you use Windows, Mac OS X, Solaris, FreeBSD, or even the same OS as me - Linux :) .
