NEWS FROM THE LAB - Monday, July 7, 2008

Live from Vilnius, EuroPython 2008 Posted by Dan @ 12:12 GMT

It may surprise some to find out exactly how much we use Python in our daily work here in the Security Lab (and beyond). Well truth be told, it's hard to imagine life at F-Secure without it. That's why F-Secure is well represented with five individuals from Helsinki and Stockholm sent to this year's European Python Conference taking place right now in Vilnius, Lithuania.

The conference opened this morning at 9:00 local time and the lectures end Wednesday evening with sprints taking place beyond that, all the way through Saturday. Today's lectures will come to an end with a special video conference featuring none other than Guido van Rossum, the author of the Python programming language.

We'll try to bring some of the highlights of the conference as soon as we can but in the meantime, why not head over to EuroPython 2008 to learn a bit more, and maybe start planning your attendance to next year's conference.

Signing off for now, Dan
