On August 20th 2011 we've celebrated the first Python Day Uruguay. The audience reached more than 200 Pythonistas coming mainly from Uruguay and Argentina. That's an amazing number counting on a population of about 3 million people in Uruguay.
The event shipped a total of 18 talks organized into 30 minute presentations and mid-sized lighting talks. The level of the talks was astonishing, flying though Python basics and introductory talks, Scrapy, NTLK, CDPedia, Unicode, Bio-informatics, Reportlab, Python on schools, video games, Pythomnic3k, web2py, Django and DBus between others. Full schedule here.
We were very proud of being personal co-organizers of the event, and making Tryolabs a sponsor of the event also.

Now, lots of work to come to make real the first PyCon Uruguay.
