PyCon: Welcome Message on the Second Day

There were 2300 people at PyCon.

180 people came to the PyCon 5K race. There were 5 people who finished in under 20 minutes.

Steve Holden is the current chairman of the Python Software Foundation. However, he's letting someone else take over. He kind of gave up on OSS before coming to Python, but has since changed his mind.

There was still a tremendous gender imbalance at PyCon, but there were a lot more women this year. There was one or more women in every row when I looked around.

Yesterday, the keynote had dancing robots. You can control them with Python.
