Be Paid to Attend PyCon 2007!

PyCon 2007, to be held in Dallas at the same location as in 2006, is coming up
and we need instructors to fill Tutorial Day on Feb 22. Last year we had
tutorials for:

Python 102
Internet Programming with Python
Getting Started with wxPython
Text & Data Processing
Plone Rapid Bootcamp
Using Databases with Python
A Game-Free Introduction to PyGame
Getting Started with the Twisted Framework
Agile Development and Testing in Python

Classes are half-day affairs (3-hours with a 15-min break) and net the
instructor $500-$1500 (depending upon enrollment). One or two of those would
easily cover your expenses for attending PyCon and then some. And since
tutorials are held the day BEFORE the main conference, you won't miss any
talks either.

Tutorials have more stringent requirements than talks, often providing class
handouts and finely tuned presentations. For this reason we want the best.

And if you're short on topic ideas, or a potential student who would like a
specific topic covered, check out our wiki page at

http://us.pycon.org/TX2007/TalkIdeas

Instructors, email your (plain text) proposals, 250 to 1000 words long, to
<py***@python.o rg>. The deadline for submissions is _Nov 15_ with an
acceptance decision by Nov 22. Your proposal should cover:

* Instructor name(s)
* Contact Information
* Summary of proposed presentation
* Presentation outline
* Intended audience (non-programmers, beginning programmers,
advanced users, core Python developers, etc.)
* (Recommended) At least one previous presentation/teaching
engagement reference

So get cranking and let us see your best.

Until then, the registration fee is $175 (student rate $125); after that date, the registration price goes up to $250 (student rate $150). Don't forget to register! ...

October has arrived and the deadline for submitting a proposal to give a talk at PyCon 2007 is October 31 (November 15 for tutorials). While it is a PyCon tradition to wait until the last minute to flood us with submissions, I would like to encourage presenters to start a bit earlier this year. We have a new talk (not tutorial) submissions system which lets you interact with your proposal online, rather than a fire-and-forget...

I've been looking over the mix of talk proposals we have so far for PyCon 2007. We're got 17 so far, with a good number of case histories. Now case histories are good, don't get me wrong, we want Python to be successful and it is interesting to hear how it is being used. But according to the feedback forms from last year, we need more talks that actually teach you how to be better programmers, especially if we want to bring new talent...

Thanks to all the proposal authors so far, we have received lots of proposals for PyCon talks & tutorials. But we'd like to have even more. Alas, the proposal submission deadline should have been set after a weekend, not before. So we have decided to extend the proposal submission deadline to Monday, November 19 at midnight (Chicago time). This gives you a *whole extra weekend* to write up your talk and tutorial ideas!

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,...

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers. The idea...
