Conference: PyCon 2011 Keynote!

I gave the opening keynote this morning at PyCon.

The one thing that everyone in the room at PyCon has in common is that we all love to code. I used that as the central theme of the talk, spoke about the constructs that give us joy, the history of some of our favorite patterns (they date as far back as the 60s!) and proposed that we think about the way we’ll compute fifty years into the future. There’s also a bit of fun data hacking, of course.

Enjoy the slides. The video is up!

Please let me know here or on Twitter if you have any questions or comments.
