The Python user community is formed of millions of people who consciously use Python, and love using it. There are active members organizing Python conferences — affectionately known as PyCons — in faraway places like Namibia, Iran, Iraq, even Ohio!
However, a simple search didn't turn up evidence of this, and the index of national PyCons does not list an Iraqi conference.
Does PyCon occur in Iraq? Was Guido conflating this with the video conference call he mentions shortly after?
