    I added it into the "outside events" section since it is Co-Ed and all... Will be psyched for the crew to grow!

    Vote for PlayPitch!! http://appolympics.bemyapp.com/

    Our awesome organizer Judy Tuan is in a run-off for the App Olympics. It takes 2 seconds to vote. You don't have to signup for anything. Judy's way to modest to ask you to vote for her, but she's given so much to the #WWCode community. Please vote for her and show your SF Women Who Code pride. Cheers!
