The OSDC is between the 1st and 3rd December 2004 in Melbourne. It sounds like there will be a whole 12 hours between that and ALTA‘s summer school and workshop… in Sydney! Pfft, there’s just about time to drive between them with that kind of timing.
I’m tempted to work up a paper for OSDC, because I sure won’t have one for ALTW. It’s a pity my Python expertise is a proper subset of spiv‘s. And I’ve been doing web development again anyway, and it lacks awesomeness. Perhaps I need to develop newer and cooler Python expertise in a hurry.
