Hi all!

We’ll see many of you at tomorrow’s PairUp, it’ll be a great opportunity to practice what you learnt at our last round of workshops or online. If you want to be a TA at the PairUp and help people with their HTML/CSS/JS, let us know! We can always use more TAs.

CodePath, the team that we partnered with us for our Android workshop a few months ago, is putting on a free 6-week Android evening bootcamp. Spots are very limited, so learn more and apply now.

Check out She++, a 12-minute documentary about gender in the tech industry. If you like documentaries and want to watch the BlackGirlsCode documentary, SFNetSquared is holding a viewing event.

The Distill conference is coming up next weekend on Treasure Island, and features speakers like Nolan Bushnell (founder of Atari!), Michael Lopp (who gives great talks on engineering management), and the creators of popular tools like Sass, TravisCI, Zend, etc.

Are you an entepreneur? FounderDating is a startup that helps entepreneurs connect with co-founders. Check it out, and let us know how your search goes.

And now for our regularly scheduled links!...
