Hi Roger,

The London Python Code Dojo happens on the first Thursday of every
month. Many developers have found jobs through attending this event
(see: http://ntoll.org/article/how-to-run-an-awesome-code-dojo for the
full details of what a dojo is - basically lots of live coding,
problem solving and discussion).

It's not uncommon for companies to turn up, stand up and say, "We're
hiring, come grab me for details". Also, were you to take part in the
dojo you'd also get to see and work with potential applicants thinking
about, resolving and presenting solutions to computing problems in Python.

We announce details on this list.
