To the Python Community, Thank you for the FOSDEM !Tue 19 February 2013 by Stéphane Wirtel
Python @ FOSDEM
How everything started
I said, and why not at FOSDEM 2013?
At beginning, Ludovic was thinking of a small joke but in fact it wasn’t.
But this adventure was not easy to create.
- Contact the FOSDEM team and ask a devroom and wait for the result
- Contact a lot of potential speakers
- Create the website
- Create the committee
- Select the talks
- Publish the schedule
- Wait for the FOSDEM ;-)
And I just announced this event on Hacker News This experience was really rewarding.
And now, it’s a great adventure
To the Python Community, Thank You !
I would like to tell thank you to everybody !
With your presence, this event has been a real great success.
I was very impressed and honored to meet you
Thank you so much !
You and Affinitic are a great sponsor with your involvements in the Python community. I was so happy to see your support at this event with your sponsorship. I worked with him at Aragne at the beginning of Python in Belgium (in the early 2000s).
Thank you for your help.
I met you at the PyConFR 2012 at Paris and you are a good guy. I discussed with you about Werkzeug, Pelican and Cornice.
For this event, you proposed a talk about the good practices for a dummy in Python. During your talk, the room was full ;-)
Thank you for your talk about the "TDD from scratch". This talk is still important and useful that apply to everyone (beginners or experts) because you show the basis of a good product / component. And sometimes, we forget those important details.
This is the first time wherein I can discuss with you about gunicorn and gaffer. The last time was at the pyconfr 2010, you showed the development of gunicorn and I was impressed by the project and your technical skill.
Now, we discuss via irc or twitter and I appreciate our discussion.
In the first place, you wanted to be in the PostgreSQL devroom, but after the first talk you stayed in the Python devroom.
Thank you for your help in the devroom.
Hope to see you at a next OpenERP event.
Thank you for your support, I really appreciate to see you at this event. Hope to see you at a next OpenERP event.
Before this week-end, I had just discussed via email, irc or twitter but not face to face. I really appreciate his work for this edition.
For the next edition, would you be interested to organize with us ?
Your talk on EasyBuild was very interesting. We will see us at a future AFPy.ro in Belgium.
Thank you dude, you have received my email about this hypothetical event, and you said me "Yes, I will go to FOSDEM".
Imagine this developer, he works for Heroku in California and he tells me, "yes I come", it’s wonderful, awesome !
Thank you so much but I have one regret :( I didn’t tell you face to face ! Hope to see you in a future event and thank you again.
Hi Ploum, Mister ploum, I like to read your articles on your blog and now your G+ account !
You were the first speaker to present your talk and I think that it wasn’t easy for you. I have really appreciated your presence at this Python @ FOSDEM.
Until the week-end of the FOSDEM, this guy does not know whether can help me for the event because his wife was pregnant.
I think you have a great gift my friend, a great success for the Python @ FOSDEM 2013 and you are daddy ;-)
Welcome in the Daddy club.
Thank you, I didn’t know you before this event, we discuss about a financial help from the Python Software Foundation. Sincerely, thank you.
Thank you for your talk on Plone.
Thank you Nelle, you has been awesome, you saved my life ;-) You know why, because there was a missing speaker, and you gave an unprepared talk.
Really, Respect !
That was really nice to have a woman in the speakers’ group.
Thank you for your talk, I didn’t discuss with you but I appreciate your talk.
It was the first talk for this young dev, your talk was really interesting and now you have a small community to help you for the development of your talk. Great, continue !
This guy knows his subject, there is no secret for him about the gevent, pyuv. I didn’t discuss with you but I had a lot of questions about pyuv. Hope to see you at the next edition.
Tarek, who not know this python dev ? You have proposed to give a t-shirt to the speakers, this idea was original and appreciated by the speakers.
You were a member of the committee, thank you for your help and advice.
Thank you for the wine bottle, I will taste it with my family in few months.
You have been surprised to receive a t-shirt and a package of belgian chocolate. Thank you for your talk about OpenStack and the jobs in this section.
Your talk on the AST was really awesome, You did not know if you could come because you hurt your back.
Thank you so much for your talk !
Hope to see you at the next PyCon FR ;-)
He was honored to be contacted by us and meet a lot of famous members of the Python Community.
Thank you and I have a dinner for you ;-) I didn’t forget.
