PyCon attendance

Tuesday, March 23, 2004

There's going to be a crowd at PyCon -- 320 confirmed registrations! And some of the PyCon papers are online.

It's going to be a challenge to accommodate that many people. The rooms we are planning to use for talks only hold around 100 people. Apparently, it's not possible to use the main ballroom for regular talks, because it would interfere with catering plans. The ballroom will even be at capacity for the keynote talks each morning.

It's wonderful that so many people will be coming. I think it will be a little larger than any of the earlier Python conferences -- certainly a lot bigger than PyCon 2003.
