About PyCon Argentina 2012:

PyCon Argentina is the largest annual worldwide community gathering of
Spanish-speaking users and developers of the Python programming
It is a community conference organized by volunteers of Python
Argentina community (PyAr), lasting several days which will bring
short courses and lectures related to this language that incipiently
makes its place among the developers.
We intended to make a space where anyone interested can come to ask,
learn and experiment with these tools.
This year, the event will be held at Buenos Aires, Argentina's capital
and one of the most important cities in Latin America.
