=== Rackspace: Jakub Krajcovic 0403577544 ===
  
Getting code to run on python 3 is a *massive* topic, and we could spend an entire week looking at it and not cover everything. As we only have 100 minutes we will only cover a relatively small, but IMHO important, subset of the topic. In particular, we will look at.
+
I had a whole spiel prepared that I wanted to put here about how awesome Rackspace is, but though nah - let's save the koolaid for later... Rackspace has 2 positions open in our Sydney office - we're looking for a Cloud Architect and a kick-ass Linux sysadmin. If you'd like to know more, get in touch with Jakub Krajcovic on 0403577544 and we can go have a coffee and a chat. Alternatively just grab me when you see me.
  
* How to get code which currently runs under 2.7 to run under 3.3 (without maintaining 2.7 backwards compatibility).
+
=== Rackspace: Michael Still ===
* How to modify your 2.7 code to be as close to 3.3 compatible as possible.
+
* How to use different tools to automate the porting process.
+
* Common gotchas with the automated tools which may require manual intervention
+
* Strategies for using all the different tools and techniques to make the porting process as simple as possible.
+
  
We unfortunately won't be able to cover some interesting topics, including

Rackspace are also expecting to hire python devs to work on OpenStack from home. Talk to Michael Still (michael.still@rackspace.com) for more information.
  
* How to get code to run under python 2 and 3 simultaneously.
+
=== Swift Networks: Adam Ashley 0418332801 ===
* How to port python extension modules.
+
* How to use brand new features which have been introduced in python 3.
+
  
The session will cater to a fairly broad range of abilities. If you're a python newbie, you should be able to keep up with everything. If you're a python guru you might just learn something new (I know I did while preparing the session!).
+
I'm looking for someone for my R&D team, mostly it's PHP with Symfony for the middleware but covers everything from multicast video distribution, GPON fibre networks, remote deployed high availability clusters to hacking around inside Android STBs.

* A shell and text editor.
+
* Any python code which you'd like help porting form 2 to 3.

All examples are platform agnostic and should work on linux/osx/windows.

* Follow along with all the examples.

* Try out the techniques on your code as we go.

* Ask questions if you would like clarification...

I look forward to seeing you all for a fun and interesting session.
