PyCon Reminders

From: wesley c.
Sent on: Wednesday, January 6, 2010 6:08 PM
if you're not going to PyCon in Atlanta next month, click [DELETE].

final reminder that today is the LAST DAY of earlybird registration.
rates go up tomorrow. http://us.pycon.o...­

another note i wanted to pass on is that airfares are the *best*
they can be now to get out there. i book my plane ticket for $425 last
week, and it's dropped over a hundred bucks. airtran and delta have RT
flights from SFO-ATL for $319(!) like *now* (and even less from OAK
starting from $289[!] but more from SJC starting at $359). let my pain
be your gain!

also, i'd like to fwd the below thread from another mailing list where
someone attempted to book their stay at the Hyatt in Atlanta for
PyCon. repeating what doug says down below, the hyatt is NOT sold out.
do NOT go to hyatt directly but book through the conference housing
bureau here: https://www.cteusa...­

cheers,
-- wesley
