  • How Python Evolves (and How You Can Help Make It Happen)

    by Nick Coghlan

    The CPython reference interpreter lies at the heart of a much wider Python ecosystem. The decisions that shape the future development of CPython ripple out and have a broad impact on the entire Python community.

    This talk covers the special place CPython occupies in the broader Python community, how the decisions that affect CPython's development are made, and how new developers can become involved in that process.

    At 11:00am to 11:30am, Saturday 20th August

  • Zookeepr: Home-grown conference management software

    by Brianna Laugher

    Zookeepr (http://zookeepr.org/) is a comprehensive web-based conference management system, written in Python and built on Pylons. It has an unusual development history: custom created for the annual Linux.conf.au conference, there are yearly spikes in event-focused feature development, but relatively little of the ongoing development typically seen in open source projects.

    This presentation is an introduction to the project, aimed at developers interested in contributing to a non-trivial open source project where meeting your fellow developers is quite possible, even likely, and your work is almost guaranteed to be seen and used each year by hundreds of Australia's most diehard geeks.

    At 11:40am to 12:10pm, Saturday 20th August
