A PyCon Notebook
As I begin to write this, I’m returning on the plane from PyCon 2013, held March 13-17 in Santa Clara, California. When I started using Python some 16 years ago, the Python conference was an intimate affair involving around a hundred people. This year’s conference featured more than 2,500 attendees and 167 sponsors—bigger than ever for an event that’s still organized by the community (full disclaimer, I was also one of the sponsors). If you couldn’t attend, video and slidedecks for virtually every talk and tutorial can be found online at http://pyvideo.org and https://speakerdeck.com/pyconslides.
