UK Python Conference 2003 - schedule

This is the provisional schedule for the Python tracks. There will be 2 days of talks, with 2 parallel tracks.

The ACCU format consists of 90 minute slots. It is well know that Python programmers are more productive and can finish in 30 or even 45 minutes. Therefore, it is best to think of these slots as "placeholders" with a "coordinator" - the talk given will definitely take place, but we may well give over a chunk of the same period to related panels, lightning talks and mini tutorials on the same theme.

This is part of a larger established event running through to Saturday with many of the luminaries of the programming world

There is also space at the venue on Monday and Tuesday for related events and we will be working to add a Zope day, Python Business Forum days, sprints, training events and so on in order to make this an unmissable week.
