This year’s PyCon UK (18th-21st Sept, Coventry) - the UK’s community organised Python programming conference - has a science track:
Given that many of the members of this list are medical professionals with more than a passing interest in programming and FLOSS I thought it might be useful to flag this up.
The science track will include Python tutorials for those who work with scientific data (aimed at all levels of experience), talks by others using Python in their scientific work and an “open science sprint” where you can buddy up with a developer and hack useful Python things.
Of course, we’ve figured out that we need to tempt you in other ways too: because of some generous sponsorship we can offer conference tickets at £99 for those who work in a scientific discipline such a medicine (compared to the full price ticket of £215). There’s also a conference meal on the Saturday evening (£30 a ticket) that’s always a lot of fun and a great way to network with some of the UK’s most talented Python programmers.
Finally, if you have something Python related that has something to do with your work in medicine please consider submitting a talk proposal. PyCon UK is a community organised conference and we can’t put it on without talks from our community…!

As always, I’m more than happy to answer any questions you may have.
