I'm traveling to NYC for PyData next week from Chicago. I've been to SciPy and PyCon but missed the Santa Clara PyData. The experiences have been beyond my wildest imagination, I've made so many new friends and learned so much, I'm really excited for my first PyData NYC.
I was curious if there was anyone else going to the conference who might generously offer up their couch and a blanket for a few nights? Of course there are options like AirBnB but it's quite boring -- I've found being in community and making a new friend so much more fun and rewarding.
A bit about me -- I'm 33, easy going and pretty social. I like meeting and talking to new people. Currently I work in finance but studied Philosophy and Japanese studies in college, and am a self taught developer. Other than that, I'm a fairly decent cook and really enjoy drinks and food with friends.
