Europython 2005 is now officially over.
I also delivered a lightning talk on darcs, which is a very well-designed revision control system. Slides (PDF) are available. I use darcs for managing gtktest code, and it has been great so far, much more pleasant to use that Arch and much more powerful than Subversion which I use at work.
I have compiled a list of talks that I attended. You can find a description of each talk on the Europython website, but I was too lazy to add direct hyperlinks on each and every talk. I did include links to day timetables, where you can find complete lists of talks (with hyperlinks to descriptions and slides).
