This has been a great week for PyHawaii! We are preparing for this month's big get together, Python Extravaganza! Signup Here! It will take place on Friday, August 28, 2015 at 7pm at The Box Jelly in Honolulu. This will be our third monthly meetup where our Pythonistas have the opportunity to share what projects they’ve been working on. Some of the projects include:

PyHawaii on the Radio
We would also like to thank Burt Lum and Ryan Ozawa for having us on their weekly show, Bytemarks Cafe. It was a great way to share our mission and objectives with a wider audience in Hawaii. Also, it was wonderful meeting movers and shakers in the college community. If you missed the show, you can listen here.
Interest in PyLadies Hawaii Chapter
We mentioned on Bytemarks Cafe that the PyHawaii team is interested in launching a PyLadies Hawaii chapter. PyLadies is an international mentorship group with a focus on helping more women become active participants and leaders in the Python open-source community. Their mission is to promote, educate and advance a diverse Python community through outreach, education, conferences, events and social gatherings. PyLadies also aims to provide a friendly support network for women and a bridge to the larger Python world. We believe that this is a great opportunity to encourage women to explore Python and its many functional uses for work, school, and/or fun.
