PyBay <http://www.pybay.com/> is a regional Python conference in SF
happening on August 19-21.  Learn from and mingle with some of the
brightest minds in Python:  Jessica McKellar (maintainer of OpenHatch and
Twisted), Raymond Hettinger (CPython contributor), Simon Willison
(co-creator of Django), Armin Ronacher (creator of Flask), Wes McKinney
(creator of Python's pandas library) and so many more!   Visit www.pybay.com
for more info on speakers and talk abstracts and to get tickets.

Twist Bioscience <https://www.twistbioscience.com/> is a biotech start-up
that synthesizes DNA on silicon to expedite the design, build, test cycle
to enable personalized medicines, pharmaceuticals, sustainable chemical
production, improved agriculture production, diagnostics, biodetection and
data storage. One of Twist Bioscience's goals is to increase awareness and
excitement around biotech opportunities in scientific research and software

Clover <https://www.cloverhealth.com/en/> is a new health insurance company
building a team dedicated to using technology in measurable ways to change
healthcare for the better.  Python is an integral part of their tech
stack.  It powers the data pipelines they use to process and analyze member
data, and it integrates well with their data science tools. Python web
frameworks are also the foundation of the internal and external apps Clover
<https://www.cloverhealth.com/en/> builds to support their insurance
operations.  For example, Django’s CMS is instrumental
in allowing their marketing team to edit website content on the fly.  Since
they rely on Python so heavily, one of their primary goals is to support
the Python community by sending people to conferences, sponsoring SF Python
<http://www.meetup.com/sfpython/> and other local events, and organizing
PyLadies <http://www.pyladies.com/> events in their office.

Thanks soooo much for supporting your python community!
