My Kind of People: Summer Python Gatherings

You used to have to identify fellow “technical” folks by the velcro on their shoes (hey, velcro is very efficient), but today there are a myriad of ways to spot and mingle with like-minded people. So if you agree that an evening sharing tales of code vectorization is an evening well spent, there are a few special gatherings you may be interested to attend this year. I’ve listed the meetings that I’m going to (or helping with) and some important dates:

EuroSciPy 2008
