Our main presenter will be Alexandre Bourget and he is going to talk about Pylons, the swiss army knife of Python Web development.

In this session, we're going to go through the main components of Pylons, with live demos of each piece of the stack: templating engines, persistence models, controllers, WSGI bricks, and some deployment scenarios. We'll also have some little comparisons between frameworks; how Pylons relates to other frameworks and languages.
