PyCon 2011: Connecting The Python Community

March 9, 2011 - March 17, 2011
Atlanta, GA

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!
One Click, Universal Protection: Implementing Centralized Security Policies on Linux Systems

With 60% of the world's websites and an increasing share of organization's mission-critical workloads running on Linux, failing to stop malware and other advanced threats on Linux can increasingly impact an organization's reputation and bottom line.

Linux Backup and Recovery Webinar

Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
