is up at http://2013.pycon-au.org/register/prices

Now that we've announced both of our keynote presenters, PyCon Australia is
very proud to be able to reveal the rest of the programme for the 2013
conference, to be held on Saturday 6 and Sunday 7 July 2013, following
DjangoCon AU and the PyCon AU OpenStack Miniconf on Friday 5 July 2013 in
Hobart, Tasmania.

Following a record-breaking response to our Call for Proposals the
conference will feature three full tracks of presentations and tutorials,
across two days, covering all aspects of the Python ecosystem, presented by
experts and core developers of key Python technology.

Our keynote presenters, Alex Gaynor, software engineer at Rdio and core
contributor to many Python open source projects, and Tennessee Leeuwenburg,
software engineer at the Australian Bureau of Meteorology, will be joined
by a wide array of presenters covering a broad range of backgrounds,
including industry, research, government and academia.

As ever, PyCon Australia is a great place to keep up-to-date with the
latest trends in Python web technology: Django lead developer, Jacob
Kaplan-Moss will be presenting on Building secure web apps: Python vs the
OWASP Top 10. As well as DjangoCon AU, the main conference will feature
talks on testing, deployment, and optimisation of Python-based web apps.

For the first time, we've packed out an entire stream of talks on using
Python in the Sciences. Centred around Edward Schofield's tutorial, Modern
scientific computing and big data analytics in Python, there are also talks
on the amazingly versatile IPython Notebook, and the Pandas numerical

We've also made sure that beginners, or people looking to brush up on their
Python skillset, have a clear path through the conference. Starting with
Peter Lovett's Python 102 tutorial, you can rapidly enhance your knowledge
of Python, and then you can attend our general stream talks to glean a
snapshot of the state of the art in Python.

The full schedule for PyCon Australia 2013 can be found at

Registrations for PyCon Australia 2013 are now open, with prices starting
at AU$44 for students, and tickets for the general public starting at
AU$198. All prices include GST, and more information can be found at

We're looking forward to seeing this excellent programme brought to life at
PyCon Australia 2013, in Hobart, in July.
