PyCon 2011: Connecting The Python Community
PyCon is the largest annual gathering for the community using and developing the open-source Python programming language.
PyCon is really three events in a row:
- Tutorial Days: Wednesday March 9 & Thursday March 10.
- Learn something new and relevant in intensive 3-hour sessions. The evenings are free for socializing and Open Space.
- Want to teach a class? All you need to know about submitting a proposal can be found here. Notice: the call for proposals is now closed.
- Here are the classes offered this year. [Note: no classes are posted, yet]
- Selected to teach a class? You want to know this.
- Conference Days: Friday March 11 through Sunday March 13.
- See what's going on in the Python world, meet your fellow Pythonistas, share your knowledge and experience, make contacts, brainstorm projects, discuss prospects... the sky's the limit.
- Scheduled talks will happen in the ballrooms. 5 tracks of talks and panels on a wide variety of topics will be presented, with something for everyone. Also we'll have keynote talks every day.
- Open Space sessions: an "unconference" in parallel with the scheduled talks.
- Lightning talks are quick 5-minute talks that you can sign up for at the conference. In a word, lightning talks are FUN!
- The poster session is its second year and will be larger.
- Expo Hall: Meet with representatives of companies using Python, supporting Python, and hiring Pythonistas. Snag some swag!
- Many sponsors will be recruiting, so come prepared with business cards and resumes if you're in the job market. You can also check out the Python Job Board for listings.
- And don't forget the hallway track!

Until recently, IBM’s Power Platform was looked upon as being the system that hosted IBM’s flavor of UNIX and proprietary operating system called IBM i. These servers often are found in medium-size businesses running ERP, CRM and financials for on-premise customers. By enabling the Power platform to run the Linux OS, IBM now has positioned Power to be the platform of choice for those already running Linux that are facing scalability issues, especially customers looking at analytics, big data or cloud computing.
￼Running Linux on IBM’s Power hardware offers some obvious benefits, including improved processing speed and memory bandwidth, inherent security, and simpler deployment and management. But if you look beyond the impressive architecture, you’ll also find an open ecosystem that has given rise to a strong, innovative community, as well as an inventory of system and network management applications that really help leverage the benefits offered by running Linux on Power.Get the Guide
