About PyCon Argentina 2012:

PyCon Argentina is the largest annual worldwide community gathering of 
Spanish-speaking users and developers of the Python programming language. This year we expect around 500 attendees, with +250 already pre-registered.
It is a community conference organized by volunteers of Python Argentina users group (PyAr), lasting several days which will bring short courses and lectures related to this language that incipiently makes its place among the developers.
We intended to make a space where anyone interested can come to ask, learn and experiment with these tools.
This is our 4th conference, again in Buenos Aires, Argentina's capital and one of the most important cities in Latin America.
