PS : You will be pleased to know that, as of now, we have confirmed the attendance of Jacob Kaplan-Moss (of Django) and Dr. Prabhu Ramachandran as keynotes. And with other notable pythonistas expected.

We are also informing on a Call for Tutorials. Please check the web site for details if you can conduct a tutorial.
