PyCon 2004, March 24-26, 2004 in Washington, D.C., is a
community-oriented conference targeting developers (both those using
Python and those working on the Python project). It provides
opportunities to learn about significant advances in the Python
development community, to participate in a programming sprint with some
of the leading minds in the Open Source community, and to meet fellow
developers from around the world. The organizers work to make the
conference affordable and accessible to all.
*Mitch Kapor to give keynote address*
Mitch, founder of the Open Source Application Foundation, will be the
keynote speaker for the conference.
OSAF will be running a Sprint from Mar 20-23 prior to the PyCon 2004
conference. The topics for the sprint will focus on the Chandler
repository. At the moment, these include repository dump/restore
functionality, and remote repository sharing using WebDAV.
Andi Vajda and Ted Leung will the coaches for the sprints, and will be
doing brief tutorials for people unfamiliar with the Chandler
repository. We want to use the sprint to involve more people in the
Chandler development process as well as accomplish some tasks that will
be useful for Chandler.
If you are interested in participating in the sprint, please add your
self to the ChandlerSprint page:
What is a Sprint?
The sprint is a four day focused development session, in which
developers pair in a room and focus on building a particular subsystem.
A sprint is organized with a coach leading the session. The coach sets
the agenda, tracks activities, and keeps the development moving. The
developers work in pairs using extreme programming's pair programming
*And a BOF too!*
In addition, we plan to have an OSAF 'Birds Of a Feather' gathering
during PyCon itself to answer questions about Chandler and socialize
with Python developers.
