Recently, I attended both Pycon UK and Pycon Ireland to talk about the lessons I have learnt while maintaining mongoengine. The conferences were both excellent and surprisingly different. Pycon UK had quite an “unconference” feel, with some exciting sprint rooms - I wish I had more time as by all reports the educational jam was inspirational. Pycon Ireland in contrast felt more slick with booths from DemonWare, Amazon and Facebook. If you can, I’d advise going to both conferences as they really complement each other.
