To promote Python's use in New Zealand the NZ Python User Group (NZPUG) is holding the first Kiwi PyCon conference in Christchurch at the Canterbury Innovation Incubator on November 7th and 8th.

The event will include talks highlighting how Python has been used in web and desktop applications, in the field of science and maths, in gaming and animation, and in various other fields. The main keynote speaker at Kiwi PyCon, Joel Burton, an internationally recognised trainer and presenter, will explain how Python is becoming the language of choice for developing websites. There will also be an unconference part of the event where delegates will be able to give short 5 minute presentations regarding how they've been able to benefit from Python.

150 delegates are expected from across New Zealand and Australia. We've had 140 registrations thus far and registration closes on October 23rd so get in quick so you don't miss out. For more information visit
