PyCon: Some Random Comments

Here are some random comments:
  • Unfortunately, many of the speakers who had some trouble getting their presentations setup were Ubuntu users using OpenOffice.org.
  • Adele Goldberg told me that normative evaluation, like they do at UC Santa Cruz, is helpful for girls.
  • Someone gave a big plug for Pyro, which is an RMI system for Python.
  • Robert M. Lefkowitz mentioned that Saint Isidore, the Bishop of Seville, is the saint of programmers and the Internet.
  • This is obvious, but the best talks at PyCon were the ones that integrated the audience.

Comments

UC Santa Cruz actually calls those "narrative evaluations", not "normative evaluations".
