GitHub announces PyCodeConf 2011
The organisers say that PyCodeConf isn't a replacement for or competitor to the PyCon Python conferences, adding that "the world is big enough for both!" While the event curators "love what the PSF (Python Software Foundation) is doing with PyCon," they hope to offer a "smaller, tighter focused, more intimate experience".
PyCodeConf is GitHub's second conference; the first was CodeConf, which took place in April of this year. The focus of CodeConf is on social coding and bringing together software developers from all around the world.
GitHub provides hosted repositories for Git, the distributed revision control system developed by Linus Torvalds, enhanced with its own web front-end and tools. GitHub has become one of the most active venues for open source developers to share, discuss and develop their code, and has built on Git's ability to allow developers to clone a code repository and work with the code without having to coordinate pushing changes back.
Registration for PyCodeConf will open soon. For updates and more information on PyCodeConf 2011, users can follow @PyCodeConf on Twitter. Fans of the neon PyCodeConf logo can find download links for desktop and mobile wallpapers in a post on the GitHub blog.
