I'm the coordinator of the poster session for the national Python 
programmers conference in Atlanta, Feb 19-21 2010, and a long-time 
lurker on this list. I'm writing to invite anyone with a Pythonic topic 
to submit a poster proposal and to come to PyCon if you can, or to 
submit a virtual poster, if you can't make it to Atlanta.

Poster sessions are new to us, and we're hoping they will offer more 
people a chance to present on a more diverse array of topics.
We're also looking for virtual posters (5 min videos), particularly from
the education community, both students and teachers.

For more information about the poster session visit
http://us.pycon.org/2010/conference/posters/ and for the conference in
general (including registration fees, lodging, etc) go to

The official deadline for poster submissions is the end of the month,
but the proposal process is a very simple one, only requiring a few
paragraphs of description. In addition, it's possible that we will be
accepting poster proposals after that date on a "space available" basis. 
Also, the virtual poster deadline is considerably later.

I'm sorry I didn't get this to the Sugar community sooner - I had 
assumed, since the Python and Sugar communities overlap a bit, that you 
probably were aware of what was happening with PyCon, but I now realize 
that I was probably assuming too much.

In any case, I think that both communities might benefit from some Sugar 
related posters or virtual posters, so I hope that someone will come up 
with something. I should also mention that there is some financial aid 
is available to attend PyCon - please check 
http://us.pycon.org/2010/registration/financial-aid/ for more information.

So please share this with developers, colleagues and students, and if 
you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to contact me.

This time for sure!
