Valuable conferences in computing

Face-to-face encounters remain valuable

Live conferences occasionally are worth the horrendous travel costs they often entail. Here are three about which I have at least peripheral knowledge:

  • The just-concluded EuroTcl nicely demonstrated that Strasbourg is one of the world's great destinations, and that Tcl remains a valuable tool for all sorts of unusual corners of computing.
  • PyTexas 2010 is a regional conference focused on use of Python, especially in academic settings. It'll be held in Waco on August 28.
  • SVG Open 2010 is the Eighth International Conference on Scalable Vector Graphics, a subject I think important enough to mention in "Smart Development" frequently. The Conference will be in Paris (France, not Texas) at the end of August.

This story, "Valuable conferences in computing" was originally published by ITworld.
