A particular target audience we’re trying to reach is entrepreneurs, developers, professionals, students in the IT & Technology sector who aren’t too familiar with Python. We’d like them to come along and see how Python is being used in various areas and therefore how they could make use of it.
This year we're featuring 2 keynotes: Michael Foord, a Python core developer, as well as Jessica McKellar, a Python Software Foundation director, 2013 O'Reilly Open Source Award recipient, as well as a proponent of using Python to teach computer programming to beginner programmers.
As with other years, there will also be an excellent line up of talks but this year we're also featuring for the first time some exciting new events, such as a full day of tutorials on the Friday prior to the conference, as well as a Recruitment Track, where companies seeking Python developers and people looking for Python-related work can meetup.
