Posted on 24-Sep-2010 07:30 | Tags Filed under: News



Over 150 computer programming enthusiasts are set to meet at the Kiwi PyCon 2010 conference on Saturday 20 and Sunday 21 November at the Copthorne Hotel & Resort Bay of Islands in Waitangi.

Kiwi PyCon 2010 registrations are now open.

Python, a programming language used throughout the world, has a massive following and Python conferences are held around the globe. Kiwi PyCon is New Zealand's Python community coming together and will cover the use of Python in the scientific, web, mobile, gaming, and animation fields.

The event has garnered notable support, with Catalyst IT and Microsoft as major sponsors and many other well known companies and organisations including the Python Software Foundation, Plone Foundation, Atlassian, Enthought, Tait Radio Communications, Apress, Packt Publishing, O'Reilly, ThinkGeek, Amazon Web Services, Wingware, ANZTB, Mozilla and ActiveState all backing the conference.

Organised by the New Zealand Python User Group Inc.(NZPUG), it promises to bring together developers, designers and business people who will listen to industry speakers. US-based Jacob Kaplan-Moss, creator of "Django", a successful and widely used web application framework along with Anthony Baxter, long-time release manager of Python from Melbourne are keynote speakers for the event.

Kiwi PyCon 2010 topics will include:
• “How Python is influencing neuroscience research"
• Microsoft (Australia) showing how they support Python on their "Azure" platform
• Amazon web service
• Gmail gadgets
• "Going Global : Using Best Effort Translation To Create Multilingual Web Apps"
• Python and Java
• Python in Astronomy

Another guest speaker for the conference is Matt Provost, Systems Manager at Weta Digital, five-time Academy award winning visual effects facility located in Wellington. Matt will speak about "Python in the Datacentre", as he manages all Weta Digital servers, storage and networking which occupies five positions on the Top 500 Supercomputer list.

Danny Adair, NZPUG's founding president said “Python is used everywhere, and for anyone interested in or using the language, our annual conference is the place to be.”
