<h2>Introducing Guides and the Attendee Wiki</h2>

<p><span class="date">Tuesday, November 14, 2017</span>&mdash;Today we are launching the <a href="/wiki">Attendee Wiki</a> for North Bay Python 2017 attendees, as well as <a href="/guides">a small pile of guides</a> to help people make the most of their conference experience.</p>

<p>We've sketched out a few key guides, such as:</p>

  <li><a href="/accessibility">Accessibility and Accommodations</a></li>
  <li><a href="/emergencies">Emergencies</a></li>
  <li><a href="/wiki/fitness">Fitness</a></li>
  <li><a href="/attend/transit">Getting Around P'town</a></li>

<p>Some of the Wiki pages we've started require community participation to be of any value, in particular:</p>

  <li><a href="/wiki/job-board">Job Board</a></li>
  <li><a href="/wiki/meetups">Meetups</a></li>
  <li><a href="/wiki/ride-sharing">Ride Sharing</a></li>

<p>We'll be sharing more information and launching more guides soon.</p>

<h2>North Bay Python 2017 speaker lineup released</h2>

<p>Joining Carina C. Zona as a keynote speaker will be <a href="">Brandon Rhodes</a>. Brandon has been a Python user for 20 years, and a speaker at Python conferences for almost a decade. In fact, he was the Chair of PyCon 2016 and 2017. His talks make connections between the past and present, and between computer programming and other disciplines. He currently works at Dropbox on their developer tools, helping to make Dropbox engineers happy and productive.</p>

<h2>Preview the North Bay Python 2017 program schedule</h2>

<p><span class="date">Monday, October 16, 2017</span>&mdash;We've released a preview of the North Bay Python 2017 program, including <a href="/schedule/general-sessions/list">13 of our 20 session speakers</a> and our first of two keynoters: <a href="">Carina C. Zona</a>.</p>

<p>Carina is a developer evangelist, advocate, photographer, crocheter, gluten-free baker, and certified sex educator. She is also the founder of <a href="">CallbackWomen</a>, whose mission is to radically increase gender diversity at the podium of professional programmers' conferences, and has been an organizer and instructor for many other tech nonprofits.</p>

<p>Following on from her talks <a href=""><em>Schemas for the Real World</em></a> and <a href=""><em>Consequences of an Insightful Algorithm</em></a>, Carina's keynote will continue her line of critical thinking and explorations of the unexpected cultural effects of our decisions as programmers.</p>
