I just came back from the last day of Kiwi Pycon 2011. I really enjoyed the event, the talks have been really good and there were a lot of people to meet, there were over 150 people at the event in total. I have taken some photos, located in my all new Django gallery, although there are not a lot of them and they aren't really that good.

More photos are available on Flickr from other people, and you may also want to check out #kiwipycon2011 on twitter. The next Kiwi Pycon is going to be in Dunedin in 2012, hopefully I can make it there next year.

Upcoming Tour of Weta Datacenter

I got an email Friday morning, that I had been successful in the draw for a tour of the Weta Digital datacenter, by registering early for the Kiwi Pycon 2011 conference. There are only 8 places for this tour, and were drawn from the first 100 early registrations.

I am very excited about going to this event, it is the day before the Kiwi Pycon conference starts. The email states that the Weta Digital datacenter is often cited as the largest collection of data processing power in New Zealand, and Python is at the heart of the operation, how cool is that!

I am really looking forward to this event, as well as the Kiwi Pycon, which is only two weeks away now.
