Notes

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 last month's Django workshop.

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.
