What is PyConZA?

PyConZA is the first annual gathering of the South African community using and developing the open-source Python programming language.

The first PyConZA will be taking place at the The Pavilion Clocktower in the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, Cape Town, South Africa from the 4 - 5 October 2012. Register here.
