Howdy Pythoneers,

Upcoming events

Geek Girl San Diego (geekgirltechcon.com)
Geek Girl is a hands-on conference for women and men of all skill levels interested in technology. The conference is on June 21st at the Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace and Justice on the beautiful University of San Diego campus. Scholarships are available for those seeking assistance.

Saturday study group (meetup.com)
San Diego Python and PyLadies are continuing the Saturday study group at Pangea cafe. The goal of the Saturday study group is to learn Python together in a collaborative environment. There's talk about a Scientific Python Study Group as well for July but I don't want to spoil too much yet.

San Diego Python monthly meetup (meetup.com)
Our regular monthly meetup will be held at the Ansir Innovation Center on Thursday June 26. The speaker(s) haven't yet been finalized but we have a number of people who have spoken up and we're going to try a format of more, shorter (~5 min) talks. If you're interested, feel free to contact us.


Senior Django developer (djangogigs.com)
Fintoo.com, an early stage startup from Torrance, is looking for a Django developer.

Python robotics developer (braincorporation.com)
Brain Corporation is a Sorrento Valley based startup building robots that have animal-like learning. They are looking for talented software engineers. Most of their code base is in python. They have free Apple gadgets, breakfasts and lunches and a fun, relaxed environment. Feel free to contact Jonathan directly.

SD Python workshops (pythonsd.org)
San Diego Python now has a specific page about our past workshops. If you missed a workshop but want to know what we covered, take a look. If you run a local users group, feel free to borrow liberally from our materials.

May meetup videos (youtube.com)
The audio is not great, but last month's presentations by Daniel Greenfeld and Trey Hunner are up on youtube. You can also check out Danny's slides and Trey's slides.


Would you like to see your job opening posted here? Send it to us. It's free. However, if you recruit some top notch folks as a result and you are feeling particularly generous, the Python Software Foundation accepts donations on our behalf but there is no obligation. These donations entirely go toward paying for workshops such as March's Django TDD workshop.

Did you know you can download the San Diego Python logo and monogram it onto your shirt, hoodie, hat or bag? See the relevant old post for more details.

Here at San Diego Python, we love feedback. If you love our newsletter, tell us! If you hate it, we want to hear from you. Did you see some articles that we should have posted? Do you have an article, event or other suggestion for our next newsletter? Email us or tweet @sandiegopython.
