The Philadelphia Python Users Group (PhillyPUG) Message Board › Are you a women wanting to go to Google I/O?
Hello women of PhillyPUG!
The PyLadies leadership team has shared the following information with us:
Google has set aside a block of 50 tickets for PyLadies that are available at a hugely discounted rate: $300 instead of the normal $900. The catch is that there is no financial aid available -- you'll need to pay your own travel & hotel.
If you're interested in applying for one of these tickets, fill out this Google Form:
**PLEASE NOTE**: No additional financial aid will be given! You are responsible for your own funds, travel arrangements, etc. Feel free to coordinate on the PyLadies Google Group mailing list or others (e.g. DevChix, Systers, etc) for roommates, etc. The women of PhillyPUG can still apply even though we don't have a PyLadies chapter here in Philly.
