Organizing Python Representation at OSCON 2007

OSCON 2007 in Portland, Oregon from July 23-27 is fast approaching. This is a
professional conference that can give Python a lot of visibility in the IT
world and draws a different crowd from our community-run conferences like PyCon.

There looks to be a good set of talks on the Python track, with several
positioned to promote the use of Python by telling its story:

- Code Like a Pythonista: Idiomatic Python
- SQLAlchemy: Taming ORM with Python
- Super-sizing YouTube
- How to Write a Killer Sugar Activity
- Exploiting Multicore Capabilities from Python
- Python 3000
- Programming for Everybody: CP4E
- Coding with Dynamic Confidence

There also is the opportunity to reach out by holding Python
birds-of-a-feather gatherings. The Python community is a friendly group and
face-to-face contact is important to convey the human aspect of Python. BoFs
can be scheduled by visiting the OSCON page:

I will not be attending this year, so we need one or more who are willing to
step forward and loosely organize a bit. Let's discuss this on the Python
advocacy mailing list and make it happen this year.
