- Extending Java Applications with Jython
- I'm hopeful that this can really move Jython from my "stuff I think is cool" box to my "stuff I use every day" box.
- IronPython Tooling
- This is going to cover development environments and tools for debugging and profiling... pretty much a necessity in the .NET world. I also hope to use the video of this talk in the future in talking to the hordes of programmers around here who live and breathe Visual Studio.
- Python in the Browser
- Silverlight is way too cool to leave to the C# kids.
- Think Globally, Hack Locally - Teaching Python in Your Community
- As a local group-leader type geek, I'd love to start some of these Hack Nights.
- Dude, Where's My Database?
- There were so many proposals for descriptions of non-relational databases - but this one really stands out because it looks at the huge picture, classifying databases by their broad category and highlighting what makes each category beneficial for particular purposes.
- Sprox: data driven web development
- I confess - I've fallen behind the TurboGears world lately. Nobody's demanded a dynamic web app of me for a while, and TG has moved too fast for me to keep track of it. When last I was involved, Sprox was just emerging. I hope this talk will help me catch up.
- Revisioned Databases for MultiUser Editing
- Revisioned databases are an interesting concept, and seeing how one was actually developed should warm my datageek heart.
- Easy command-line applications with cmd and cmd2
- Interactive command-line interfaces were good enough for ZORK, and they're good enough for you! cmd and cmd2 make them crazy-easy. (I'll get in trouble if I don't go to this one, since I'm the speaker.)
- Dealing with unsightly data in the real world
- Gathering data from disparate, chaotic sources is a big part of pretty much everybody's life. I'm eager for any new insights.
- An Underwater Python: Tortuga the Python Powered Robot
- because, deep down inside, people everywhere are the same; we all want to be loved, and Python-powered robot submarines.

When I look over the PyCon 2010 talk list, I'd like to be at about half of them (a physical impossibility, until I master self-multiplexing). Still, these are the ones that I'll move heaven and earth to be at. What about you - what are your favorites?
