PyCon Reminder: Early bird reg deadline 2/1


This is a reminder that the deadline for early bird registration for
PyCon DC 2004 is February 1, 2004. Early bird registration is $175;
after that, it will be $250 through March 17, then $300 at the door.
(Note that a week ago I announced the wrong prices for non-early
bird. :-) To register, visit:



PyCon is the most important conference in the year for me. It brings
together the largest group of Python users and developers imaginable.
I come to PyCon for many reasons: to meet with other core Python
developers face to face; to hear about the exciting things that users
from all over the world are doing with Python; to interact in person
with Python users of all types, from newbies to veterans of many
years; to hear everybody's feedback on where Python is and where
they'd like it to go; and perhaps most of all to continue to encourage
this wonderful community by my presence, words and actions to grow,
reach out to new users of all kinds, and keep listening to each other.

I hope everyone who comes to the conference will return from it with a
new or renewed feeling of excitement about Python, whether they are
developers, sophisticated users, beginners, or even skeptical
passers-by. The Python community includes everyone, from grade
schoolers just learning about computer science to renowned scientists
interested in using the best tools and business people looking for a
secret weapon.

I'm looking forward to seeing you all at PyCon!


PyCon is a community-oriented conference targeting developers (both those
using Python and those working on the Python project). It gives you
opportunities to learn about significant advances in the Python
development community, to participate in a programming sprint with some
of the leading minds in the Open Source community, and to meet fellow
developers from around the world. The organizers work to make the
conference affordable and accessible to all.

DC 2004 will be held March 24-26, 2004 in Washington, D.C. The keynote
speaker is Mitch Kapor of the Open Source Applications Foundation
(http://www.osafoundation.org/). There will be a four-day development
sprint before the conference.

We're looking for volunteers to help run PyCon. If you're interested,

MessageBill reminds me to remind you that PyCon 2004 early-bird registration ends soon. PyCon is shaping up, and registrations are coming in. Still room for sprints on new topics, though - talk to Jeremy Hylton about them. Still time to send in your paper, too. This year we are also looking for good educational papers, as we have encouraged students to attend with a $50 discount, and they need good learning materials. Still a week before...

Dear Python User: I wonder if you would be kind enough to take the time to read this email and help us to publicize PyCon DC 2005, being held March 23-26 at the Cafritz Conference Center of George Washington University. The Call for Participation went out some time ago, but it is a good time to remind people that the deadline for submissions is December 31. If you personally are thinking

Pythonistas: If you have been putting off your registration, stop putting it off! Last year the early bird deadline was extended because we were a little late getting the program together. This year the program was published two weeks in advance of the deadline for early bird registrations, which is JANUARY 28 (and it's already January 26). So, don't delay: save yourself $75 and register by midnight Friday.

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
