We are extremely excited to announce that Eric Jones and Travis Oliphant will be speaking at StackOverflow DevDays in Austin on October 14th.
Developers worldwide have been flocking to snatch up tickets, and Joel Spolsky’s visionary description of the event is indeed promising:
We decided to cram as many diverse topics as possible into a single day event. Like a tasting menu at a great restaurant, well line up six great speakers in each city.
This is not going to be just a Java conference or a .NET conference or a Ruby conference. This will be completely ecumenical…The conference is for programmers. The conversation is going to be hard core. Speakers are going to be writing code.
Travis and Eric will be talking, of course, about Python: A fast and furious hour-long introduction to the language and why people love it. If you’re interested in attending, register at Carsonified.
