Hi fans of BayPiggies,

Looking for something cool to do next weekend?  SF Python is putting
together a Python Conference <https://pybay.com/> in SF with 600+
Pythonistas and 55+ speakers from around so you can geek out on your
favorite topics and make some new friends!

*The conference is intended as a fund-raising event for SF Python to
produce 20+ free events throughout the year but since we've just secured a
bit more sponsorships and individual donations, we are running one more
round of Diversity and Inclusion scholarships / financial aid awards this
weekend. See ProTip below and Apply for diversity and inclusion
scholarships by 8/10 at 12n
<https://pybay.com/volunteer-and-scholarships/#scholarship>. If you can
afford a ticket, we will have even more money for D&I.*

Here are some of the amazing speakers! 33% of speakers are from
under-presented groups!

Protip: Don’t forget to mention any contributions to the community / open
source projects!  If you don’t live in the bay area, state that you will
cover your own travel - we can’t cover your travel.  Chances are better if
you need half-scholarships. Our scholarship chair Chris will let you know
by Sunday.

PS. Tremendous gratitude for our program chair's brother who has complied
this short about PyBay <https://youtu.be/EwK04nc4iyI>for us! He just
graduated from film school in case if you have video projects for him to
do! He will be at PyBay.

Cheers and happy coding!
