In episode 4 we present a fun, yet by no means comprehensive, overview of PyCon 2011. PyCon, the conference dedicated to the Python programming language, presents a unique opportunity for meeting and engaging not just the traditional software development community, but also the scientific computing community.

This year promised to be the best ever, and certainly delivered! Live vicariously through inSCIght if you couldn’t make it out to Atlanta this year…

Today’s pythonistas include:

  • Geraldine A. Van der Auwera
  • Jeff Ramnani
  • Anthony Scopatz (moderator)
  • Peter Wang

And look Mom, no SXSW!  Well, almost…

Intro/Outro Music: ‘Mega Man 3 Snakeman Get Down OC ReMix’ -Disco Dan (Get it?!)
