The PyCon conference held a few years back in DC was a bit bigger, but I don't
see why you couldn't do what they did. It used the facilities at GWU. It
ought to work for a conference this size. The nice thing about that location
is there's a Metro stop a couple of blocks away as well as hotel space
Is this conference going to include tutorials?
One OS to rule them all, One OS to find them,
One OS to bring them all, and in the Darkness bind them,
In the land of Redmond, where the Sales Reps lie.
