PyCon 2012: New Relic, Loggly and Skullcandy party!

One of the things we love about our sponsors is their willingness to not just sponsor PyCon - but to get involved, help volunteer, and well - help throw parties!

The first party is courtesy of New Relic, Loggly and Skullcandy - from their event page:

PyCon 2012 Attendees! Join New Relic, Loggly and Skullcandy for a special PyCon party event on March 9, from 7 pm - 9 pm at the Hyatt Regency Santa Clara (Across from the Convention Center).

Don't miss this opportunity to network with your Python Community peers over drinks and hors d'oeuvres.

Even better, bring your biz card and enter to win some sweet shwag from Skullcandy, maker of premier headphones, earbuds, and headsets. Best of all, it's free! Space is limited to 250 so be sure to register and reserve your spot today!

You can sign up for the party right over here on their events page - but you'd better hurry, spots are going fast.

Be warned… It's the night before the PyCon 5k, which starts at 7am sharp the next day :)

Updated refund policy for Attendees and Financial Aid recipients traveling to PyCon internationally

International travel to the United States has become a greater risk for many in our community. In light of current conditions, PyCon is providing additional support for international travelers. If you are travelling internationally to PyCon, take note of the following information. Financial Aid applicants should take note of additional information specific to that process in the second section. For All International Travellers to PyCon In order to better assist our international community, we have extended the following clauses from the 2017 refund policy for Financial Aid recipients to our refund policy for all attendees of PyCon:  If despite holding a visa you are denied entry upon arrival to the United States, then after you pursue and receive whatever refund your airline might be able to offer, PyCon wants to send you enough money to cover the rest of the cost of your airfare. You will need to document that you indeed arrived in the United States and were denied entry. If despite…

PyWebOff

This was an interesting talk by Michelle Levesque. She wanted to write a Python webapp and went to get one for her project. Surely, there is one available.

Actually... there isn't one. Kinda too bad. There are about 40 instead. Then she faced the dilemma of "which to choose?" And that's when she started the "web-off". Have a big comparison among some of the big players to see what works best.

The talk briefly described four of the seven approaches that she is looking at. She has more details on the results so far, along with a blog of results as she goes.

Very interesting talk. Personally, I don't use any of those as they generally mix the HTML output and the Python code too much.
