PyCon: In Addison, Texas

  • nman64: Oh, a quick note about PyCon: In Addison, Texas, it is a relatively small event, and does have a registration fee.

  • It is private list. If you have any request or suggestion to FAMSCO, please email me and I'll forward to them. :)

Presentations for Ambassadors

  • We need to provide Ambassadors with some slide decks for various presentations.
  • We should probably aggregate the ones we already have and make them available.
  • We should also figure out our policy for licensing these presentations!
  • tchung thought Rahul was working on *Official* or *Standard* slides for us
  • We'll need contributors to complete the CLA (as all Ambassadors should), and will probably be licensing them using the OPL without stipulations.

Standard Ambassadors kit

  • this is either already done or Greg is still working it :)
  • The content of the kits is just about finalized, but production and distribution will still take time.
  • Greg will be back to give us update on Standard Ambassadors kit in the next meeting
  • At present, it looks unlikely that shirts will be part of the standard kit, but will be available for < $10 USD to Ambassadors.
  • The *current* plan is to include reasonable quantities of install DVDs.
  • We're having to watch production costs, so that really isn't feasible right now.
