 Learn programming in Python at the Python Conference

Python is one of the most versatile interpreted programming languages
around.  It is available for all major platforms (Windows, Mac and
Unix), and is completely free, including all source code(!).  Python
has its own web site:

        http://www.*-*-*.com/

Python is object-oriented by design, and is easy to learn, even for
non-expert programmers.  It is also very readable -- some people use
it as executable pseudo code!

Python is usable for every programming task: from writing CGI or
sysadmin scripts, via rapid prototyping of distributed systems, to
full-fledged GUI-based applications.  It can be linked to other
languages, and wrappers are available (or easily constructed!) to
connect it to databases, scientific and numerical code, engineering
applications, rendering libraries, you name it.  On Windows, it talks
COM/DCOM and ActiveX; on the Mac, it talks AppleScript.  Using Xerox
PARC's ILU, it talks CORBA.

In October this year, a unique opportunity exists to learn python from
the experts: by coming to the Sixth International Python Conference,
held October 14-17.  The first day is devoted to tutorials for both
beginners and experts; the rest of the conference will be an
entertaining mixture of presentations, panels and discussions.

If you register by Friday September 12, you save $50 on registration!
