Coffee

Thanks to gold sponsors Arclight, we will be able to provide one of the most requested additions to this year's conference:  Coffee!

Yes, Arclight have generously agreed to provide a free coffee cart for the duration of the conference.  And there was much rejoicing.



Hosting Panel

Saturday evening will feature an informal panel discussion with several hosting providers.  Come and hear from our hosting panel about why their services are right for hosting your next Python project! Each group will give a quick 5 minute spiel, to be followed by a casual drink before the conference dinner.

This event is happening in a private area at Mr B's pub, across the street from the SMC. As this is a licensed venue anyone under 18 will have to be accompanied by a parent or guardian.



More Sponsors Announced
