Calling all IT geeks and tech-savvy people!

Kiwi PyCon 2010, New Zealand's conference dedicated to the Python
programming language, is on this weekend at the Copthorne Hotel in
Waitangi. With a great lineup of speakers from Weta Digital, Amazon,
Microsoft, Google, Catalyst IT as well as the creator of the Django
web framework, there is still time to participate in this fantastic
conference.

To help those travelling from Auckland, a bus will leave the Auckland
airport  this Friday at midday with pick up stops at Auckland
University and Massey University, and will return Sunday night at a
total cost of just $20. The bus will reach the conference Friday night
in time for  “CodeWars”, a fun event prior to the conference - pitting
eight teams of developers against each other in a three round
competition.

Friday night's “CodeWars” as well as the weekend's Kiwi PyCon
conference will offer lots of giveaways ranging  from software
licenses, geek gadgets, MSDN subscriptions, t-shirts, laptop bags,
books and loads more. Tickets are $60 for students/unwaged and $100
for everyone else. Morning/afternoon tea and lunch is included and
accommodation can be organised by dropping an email to
kiwipycon at nzpug.org or calling Danny Adair on (09) 9555 101.
