Join the Pyweek Game Jam in April

25th March 2018

From Daniel Pope:

"Pyweek is a week-long games programming challenge, run online at https://pyweek.org/.

The next Pyweek competition will run from 00:00 UTC on Sunday 15th April to 00:00 UTC on Sunday 22nd April.

Participants are challenged to write a game, from scratch, in a week. You can enter as a team or as an individual, and it's a great way to improve your experience with Python and express your creativity at the same time.

There will be five themes announced on the 8th April, and participants can vote on their preference order for these in the preceding week. The winning theme will be announced at the moment the contest starts, and your game must involve this theme somehow.

If creating a game alongside a number of other teams sounds like a fun challenge, register at https://pyweek.org/register/ and then add an entry at https://pyweek.org/25/entry_add/."

Ian Ozsvald's Data Science jobs list

16th February 2018

From Ian Ozsvald (of PyData London fame):

"I run a jobs email list focused on Data Scientist and Data Engineer jobs for Pythonistas. A jobs email is sent every 2 weeks containing 7-10 jobs, there's a focus towards London and the jobs reach across the UK and into Western Europe. Currently there are over 900 people on the list and a set have found new roles via this list. Advertising companies range from start-ups to the BBC, Cambridge University and Last.fm. Your email is never shared with anyone else, the list is controlled by mailchimp so you can unsubscribe at any time.

Here's a quote from one of the list members (Frank is a co-founder of PyDataBristol).

I’m very grateful for Ian’s job list as it enabled me to find a Data Science job in an interesting and meaningful domain, and furthermore connected me with likeminded folk. Strongly recommend. – Frank Kelly, Senior Data Scientist @HAL24K
