Do you use Python and want to go to the Python Conference on Sat and Sun 20-21st August 2011?
The organising committee of PyCON AU have secured some extra money so they can offer two ‘gender diversity grants’ this year. What this means is that two awesome female Python devotees can head to the conference for free, and one of the two will also have their travel and accommodation costs covered! Good deal for us!
The organisers have extended the deadline for entries to noon on Wednesday so if you are interested, please complete this form today. This is an opportunity to increase the representation of women in the open source community and we all know from the last GGD how important that is.
Please pass this information on!
I spoke with Tim (one of the organisers today) and he said that only had a handful (literally 5) people had applied and that he would leave the application site open until noon on Wednesday 13th, incase there were others that had missed the cut off.
