PyCon 2011: Announcing "A Fireside Chat with Guido van Rossum"

An informal fireside chat with the BDFL? Oh dear readers - it doesn't get much better than this!

I'm really happy to announce the most recent addition to our keynote/plenary talk lineup - "A Fireside Chat with Guido van Rossum" - in this interview style keynote, we will explore the mind of Python's creator and benevolent dictator - subjecting him to the "comfy chair" as well as questions from the community (picked and voted on by the community) as well as questions from the audience. This will be a guided, but informal talk.

I'm really excited by this (not just because I might be the interviewer - move over anchor news!) but also because I think it will strike a good balance between a formal, and informal talk style that will allow us to ask open, candid questions from the founder of our community and the Python language!

You can submit questions for the BDFL here:

And comfy chairs will be used.
