Notes

Would you like to see your job opening on our newsletter that reaches over 600 local Python developers? Send it to us. The Python Software Foundation accepts donations on our behalf but there is no obligation to donate in order to highlight your posting here. Five dollars helps and $50 helps a lot. These donations entirely go toward paying for workshops such as March's Django TDD workshop and September's Intro to Python workshop. Also, we are on gittip if you're into that sort of thing.

We have only ONE remaining signed copy of Two Scoops of Django. A copy could be yours (for cheaper than Amazon)!

Did you know that San Diego Python has a chat room? There are some nice folks happy to help or just chat in #sandiegopython on Freenode.
