I was at the awesome PyCon 2011 last week, where I had a fantastic time. Really great conference - tons of incredible talks and wonderful conversation. Definitely the best technical conference I've attended. Everyone I met was super friendly, down-to-earth and just all-around fun.
Had the pleasure to hang out with the Pylons/Pyramid crew who are a great bunch. I will certainly be going in 2012, when the event is scheduled to be held in Santa Clara. Plan to stay for the sprints next time!
My talk: MongoDB + Pylons at Catch.com
I was very happy to be able to present a talk on some of my work at Catch.com, where I designed and implemented the platform backend using Pylons and MongoDB. The video of my talk is embedded below:
