Guest post: Elena's Extreme Olive, Sun-dried Tomato and Feta Bread

Yeah, I made 15 and some bits from the recipe; 4 smallish end bits (sans frosting) for breakfast on Sunday morning, 9 on Sunday afternoon to friends and the remaining 6 today for morning tea to co-workers. All baked withing minutes of consumption, which made them very yummy indeed :)

Come to Django Girls at Pycon Australia in Brisbane! 

No experience required, it's a free workshop though you do need to bring your own computer. Come learn in a friendly and enthusiastic environment. 

In following in the footsteps of DjangoGirls (http://djangogirls.org/ ) as part of EuroPython, I'm very proud to organising DjangoGirlsAU as part of PyConAU.

Please share with any curious people out there! We'd love to see you there.

Just realised that I hadn't posted this here yet :)

I had the great privilege of talking at https://us.pycon.org/2014/ it was an phenomenal experience and had the chance to talk to so many extraordinary people and had the honour of making many new beautiful amazing new friends. Really felt like coming to a home I didn't previous know I had.

Yay, PyCon! Yay Open Source/Free Software! #pycon2014   #opensource
