Poster Sessions Announced

The Word is "Amazing"

A few days ago I promised that the poster session at this year's PyCon would be amazing. Now I'm in a position to back that claim up. The deadline for poster submissions has passed, and the final and official list of posters for 2011 is posted. Go ahead, go look over the list for a while... I'll wait.

This batch of 31 posters marks the next step in the growth of the PyCon poster session, nearly doubling the 17 we had for the inaugural session last year. I thought last year's posters were strong, but this year we've kept the quality and increased the quantity. Arguably the poster session will offer more content in a smaller space of time than any other event at PyCon. Now that is amazing.

You want scientific uses of Python? We've got that in spades. Bioinformatics? Yep. Parallel processing? Supercomputers?, Modeling fluid dynamics? Yeah, all of those.

But wait, there's more! We also have posters on open government, collaborative bookmaking, teaching beginners how to program, and not one, but two, posters on using a Kinect with Python in very different but equally interesting ways. And there's still more. But then if you've checked out the list of posters, you already know that.

But beware! 31 posters will mean less than 5 minutes per poster, and you know you'll want to spend more time than that. Another dilemma in the awesome "there's too much good stuff to do at PyCon" tradition. See you there.

It isn’t about being the smartest one in the room, so we don’t just pick all of the expert talks. It’s about helping everyone move together. “A rising tide lifts all boats,” if you will.
