Pycon 2012 was full of win, including the 5k on Satyrday morning! Lots of geeks out running. I loved it. Also, I nominate this 2012 for the BEST FOOD of any US Pycon. Others have already done reviews, but suffice it to say, it was an awesome conference and I highly recommend you attend next year. Better yet, send in a proposal and speak! Never spoke before? Start out at your local Python user group - they're almost always looking for speakers.

It's going to be a busy summer. Besides my urban homesteading (chickens, gardening, canning, dehydrating, cooking, etc), we're going to be doing a lot of travel. Friday, we're off to Omaha for Woodstock for Capitalists aka the Berkshire Hathaway Shareholder Meeting (yes, we own a couple shares of BRK-B stock). Next, it's off to Singapore for Pycon APAC where Alex and I will both be doing keynotes. Neither of us have been to Asia before so this will be an adventure! Two weeks later, we're in Italy for Europython, followed closely by OSCON in Portland, OR. Whew! In September, I'm heading to the Heirloom Expo in Santa Rosa, then off to the Tough Mudder in Northern California for a 12k Obstacle Course! Youch. Hope I survive that long!

In the meantime, I've just picked up a review copy of a new book from O'Reilly called Fitness for Geeks by Bruce Perry. I'll review it when I finish. You can also find me posting a fair bit on Fitocracy as annaraven.
