Announcing our final keynote speaker: Karen Tracey

May 20, 2012 – Jonas Obrist

I'm thrilled to announce that our final keynote speaker for DjangoCon Europe 2012 will be Karen Tracey.

Karen has been using Django since 2006 and is a core developer of Django now. She loves crosswords and constructs her own for several newspapers, including the New York Times, and it is her work on crosswords that initially brought her to Django, as she was seeking a frontend for her database of crosswords. She also wrote the book Django Testing and Debugging and works for Caktus. Besides her work on and with Django, Karen enjoys volunteering for a cat rescue organization dedicated to improving the lives and reducing the population of homeless cats in the Triangle area.
