A world of opportunity is waiting for you!

EuroPython is approaching and we are preparing a lot of initiatives.

Growth opportunities

LPI

The Linux professional institute, considered the world's premier Linux certification organization, will offer all LPIC exams at EuroPython 2013 on Friday, July 5. LPI is a Canadian non-profit organization and is recognized as the #1 in providing global leadership, direction and skill standards for those who pursue a career in Linux and Open Source technology.

The Linux Professional Institute Certification also certifies the competency of IT professionals using the Linux operating system and its associated tools. If you want, you can book your exam here.

Python academy

The Python programming language is relatively easy to learn and allows to solve real-world problem with a just a few concepts.
But it also offers several advanced features that can help to greatly improve the programming experience. The latest releases of Python 2.x and 3.x add interesting features that can be used passively without deeper understanding about how they work.

The Python Academy course teaches how these features work and provides details about meta-programming and other advanced techniques. If you want to take part to it, remember that it requires a separate registration fee of €242 (VAT included) for individuals, and €400+VAT for companies. What are you waiting for? Buy now!

Programming challenges


Google code jam


Do you love programming, solving tough algorithmic puzzles and having fun in the process? If so, you can't miss Google Code Jam. Don't miss this chance to compete with great programmers from all around the world, in the friendly environment of EuroPython.
You will need a free registration to join this event and your laptop!

PyRiddle


Each year EuroPython attendees confront each other on the hardest, wittiest and most twisted of Python riddles.
Many people enter the PyRiddler mansion, yet only one will manage to outsmart him and bring home the much sought-after loot, a shiny MacBook and the PyRiddler's certificate of defeat.
If you want to participate in it, bring your own laptop and be sure to take a seat in the PyRiddler's mansion ten minutes before the event starts.

Google App Engine Hackathon


Are you a creative spirit? Do you like to experience and take challenges? Google waits for you at Google App Engine Hackathon on Saturday, July 6.
Stay tuned to discover more!

Perfect attendee's checklist


EuroPython is approaching: the coolest Python week full of talks and events will begin on July 1st, in sunny Florence, Italy. To make sure you get the best out of your ticket, this is a checklist of things you should know about the conference:

* Make sure your ticket(s) are fully compiled

* We have an interactive schedule where you can browse, search, favorite talks, create a personalized schedule and so on (make sure to login).

* 4-hours trainings have a booking system in place, through the schedule; booking a seat is optional, but gives precedence in case the room gets full. Login and book your training!

* If you want to join the "PyBarbecue" conference dinner, make sure to book your seat (only 220 seats).

* Not only talks: browse our partecipant list by tag, interest, country, and make your personal profile public; get in touch with people you want to meet at the conference before getting there.

* After the great success of our helpdesk service at EuroPython 2012, we're repeating the experience: you can book a 30-min slot and get free help from an experienced programmer on a specific Python-related technology or framework. Helpdesk booking is available through the schedule. Right now, we're also looking for volunteers to *run* the helpdesks.

* Take a break from the conference and enjoy Florence, Tuscany, food, wine and museums, through our partner program.

* We are also selling geek-friendly prepaid SIMs with data plans for smartphones (with tethering, no filters on VOIP/Skype, etc.). Have a look!

* Lastly, be sure to subscribe to our blog RSS feed to stay up-to-date with the latest announcements about EP2013! See you in Florence!
