Hi PyLadies! The PyCon call for proposals is coming up soon - come try out your ideas for talks, practice your current talk, or just tell us what you've been up to. :)

* Shannon Wang, Home Environment Monitoring with Python + Arduino

* Jen Gilbert, Using Flask

* Wendy Kan, How to Compete in Kaggle

Everybody is welcome to come, but please only PyLadies sign up for talks.

    Thank you to everyone who showed up! I am still a big n00b, but I learned a whole bunch!

    This was a really great event. The talks were on interesting topics, and I especially liked that people shared checklists and lessons learned. We should keep doing short talk (lightening, thunder ;-), etc.) meetups like these - maybe every two months or every quarter? Thanks to all the speakers, and to Rachel and Udacity! I definitely came away with new interests!

    I think that Google Maps is a little bit off, calling the city "El Camino Real". Udacity is in Mountain View, not Palo Alto.
