Students, if you want to win a Raspberry Pi, come along and register for PyCon Ireland 2012. This prize is sponsored by one of our own Python Ireland members, Vishal Vatsa. So a big thanks on behalf of everyone for a generous donation.
Since I'm bribing people anyway. @All: Put your thinking caps on for lightning talks, each lightning talk will earn you a free drink (worth €5).

This year's event was bigger, but we never expected the huge amount of interest when the deadline was reached. Apologies to those who couldn't get a ticket, we will have another conference in 2012.
A big shout out to the rest of the committee
and many volunteers (bag packers, session chairs, registration, and many that I can't remember).
And a big thanks to the speakers and to you, the community. We all made it happen and good news is, we will be having another one in 2012!
