I'd emphasize the following:
* our rich set of python packages
* python is pervasive in Fedora: a lot of our tooling, our
infrastructure runs python
* showcase our infrastructure apps as they pretty much shows up what
we can do on Fedora
* interviewing python developers using Fedora as role models
* Fedora Atomic as a new way to host your applications

Most developers are sensitive on showing them how Fedora can improve
their workflow and deployment.
Last year at EuroPython, people were sensitive to Project Atomic (I
submitted a new talk this year on that topic).
