I will probably go to Pycon 2009.

I have been interested into diving into Python for quite some time. I guess my problem is that I never quite know how to begin. 

Now that I have graduated, I have more time. One of the things on my mind that comes out of my work with Twisted (and taking operations management courses) is a desire to have a more analytic understanding how reactors interact with the Stackless scheduler.
