Houston StartupDigest – September 5, 2011by StartupDigest on September 5, 2011
I want to highlight PyTexas 2011 in Bryan, TX this weekend where you can learn more about developing in the Python programming language. Also, Thursday all day in Austin, TX is the first Austin Startup Bazaar. I’ll be there as a guest mentor/expert to help startup entrepreneurs with their business and marketing questions to prepare for their pitches.
Have an event you would like to add to the calendar? Or did you really love or hate one of the events from this last week? Let me know – send in your feedback, comments, suggestions, rants and raves to: firstname.lastname@example.org or @sarahmworthy on Twitter.
Houston StartupDigest is made possible exclusively by:
