From Saturday, October 18, 2014 at 09:00 to Saturday, October 18, 2014 at 17:00Description:
Fall is generally a season of beginnings, being also the start of a new school year, marking the start of the university year, and also the season in which short or long vacations, planned or spontaneous, make place for other activities. It’s the time in which the opera season starts and in which students are shily returning to the place of their studies, yearning for past summer adventures. It’s also the time in which you can attend well established conferences. If on this falls’ IT calendar you have events such as Design Jam, CodeCamp or DefCamp, then it’s time to also add Conference.py to your calendar. Conference.py will take place in Iasi on the 18th of October and is the first conference in Romania dedicated to Python.
Conference.py proposes a full-day of technical sessions, delivered by experienced speakers which are involved in large scale open-source projects, with topics which will lead the participants towards cloud computing using Python, introduce them in the metaclass concept and file system versioning based on Git, the keywords of the event being open-source, and of course Python.
We want this conference to resonate with the IT audience from Iasi, and not only, so that through it we can facilitate and sustain the growth of the Python community and provide general technology enthusiasts a place to meet, discuss and exchange ideas. Through interesting topics, deeply routed in the open-source world, we want to enable the appetite and create a network of young people willing to get involved and learn new things, but also experienced software developers which want to find out the newest things in Python and open-source.
For this first edition we are expecting an attendance of 100 participants. We want this conference to grow and we hope to bring more and more participants each year and have more sessions covering a wide variety of topics.
The following speakers are honoring us with their presence:
