PyConUK (Python conference) is being held locally at the The TechnoCentre, Coventry University, Technology Park, Puma Way, Coventry CV1 2TT, from Friday 18th - Monday
21st September 2015.

This year's conference has a greater science content and specifically has a Science Track, which includes astronomy related items and a Keynote from Simon Sheridan, a developer on the Ptolemy instrument aboard the Rosetta space mission to comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko, '67P'. See: http://www.pyconuk.org/science/

The conference is for people of all levels and is about a lot more than just Python. It's a great opportunity to learn and enhance your science, technical and computing knowledge and skills and meet many interesting people. There is an Education Track too, http://www.pyconuk.org/education/, and also a chance to do some electronics and play with the BBC MicroBit ahead of its official release!

The Science Track tickets are just £99, that includes breakfast and lunch too, they are extremely good value for what you get.

If you still do not have a clue what this is all about; Python is a computer programming language, so called because the original developer of the language, Guido van Rossum, was a Monty Python fan - see https://python.org/.
