Keep up with technology @ Kiwi PyCon 2010

IT folks will certainly be interested in Kiwi PyCon 2010: An exciting and interesting weekend is going to
show how the programming language Python is used in science, education, and high-profile companies
here and around the world. It is held at the Copthorne Hotel & Resort in Waitangi, Bay of Islands
Saturday 20-Sunday 21 November.

Participants will learn first-hand how Weta Digital uses Python in their datacentre, or how they can
leverage cloud computing like Amazon web services and Google App Engine. The conference is also
an excellent networking opportunity to meet people who have actually delivered, from industry to
education to government sectors to Hollywood.

The registration fee ($100 regular, $60 student/unwaged) includes morning and afternoon tea, as well
as lunch on both days, the Kiwi PyCon 2010 t-shirt, and there are also tons of giveaways this year,
ranging from books, laptop bags and geek gadgets to software licenses for Python IDE's and Amazon
server credits.

An impressive sponsorship lineup includes Catalyst IT and Microsoft as Gold Sponsors; Atlassian,
Enthought, the Plone Foundation, the Python Software Foundation, and Tait Radio
Communications as Silver Sponsors; and Schwag Sponsors: Amazon Web Services, Wingware,
Mozilla, ActiveState, Apress, Packt Publishing, O'Reilly, ThinkGeek, ANZTB, and Bitbucket.
