Consider this a set of shameless self-promotional plugs: the Python 3000 travels around the world, and my Python blog is being translated into Chinese!
So I'm going on the road again with the Python 3000 talk. There will be three opportunities to watch it, in three different countries:
- In Geneva, Switzerland, at EuroPython: Tuesday 4th July, 18:30 http://www.europython.org/ (the day before, it's Alan Kay!)
- In Portland, Oregon (US) at OSCON: Thursday, July 27 11:35am - 12:20pm http://conferences.oreillynet.com/os2006/
- In Vancouver, BC (Canada) at the Vancouver Python and Zope Workshop: Friday, August 4th 19:00 - 21:00 http://www.vanpyz.org/conference
It's not too late to sign up for any of these events! The Vancouver workshop also still has openings for speakers.
Finally, another international appearance, on the web in China: my blog is being translated into Chinese by CSDN.net, the largest Chinese software developer website, CSDN.net. The translated blog is at http://blog.csdn.net/gvanrossum/ . I have to take their word for it -- it's kind of cool to see things like:
but I have no idea what it means. Fortunately, there are 1.3 billion people who do. c.l.py readers, brace yourselves. :-)
|Guido van Rossum is the creator of Python, one of the major programming languages on and off the web. The Python community refers to him as the BDFL (Benevolent Dictator For Life), a title straight from a Monty Python skit. He moved from the Netherlands to the USA in 1995, where he met his wife. Until July 2003 they lived in the northern Virginia suburbs of Washington, DC with their son Orlijn, who was born in 2001. They then moved to Silicon Valley where Guido now works for Google (spending 50% of his time on Python!).|
