PyCon 2013

PyCon US 2013 is nearly upon us. This is my first PyCon and completes my attendance at both major US Python conferences (after attending DjangoCon last September). So thanks to my employer for letting me attend.

I haven’t left for Santa Clara yet but I already feel part of the conference because of several factors:

Attending a conference with thousands of attendees feels much more personal when these tools are available. I may not be able to catch speakers after their talks (or even attend the talk at all) but I can tweet them to seek answers and potentially arrange to meet or I can grab their slides from SlideShare. I would encourage all speakers to share a contact medium of their preference and post their slides online.

All that is left for me to do now is try and pick my schedule from the plethora of interesting talks and other sessions running!
