Hi all; 
There are some upcoming coding events and conferences of interest to open source
biology programmers:

- BOSC/Broad Interoperability Hackathon -- This is a two day coding session at
  the Broad Institute in Cambridge, MA on April 7-8 focused on improving tool
  Sign up and details: http://j.mp/XJT6ew
- SciPy 2013 -- The Scientific Python conference is June 26-27 in Austin and has
  a Bioinformatics mini-symposia this year. They're doing some great work like
  IPython, NumPy, SciPy and scikit-learn; and this is a nice opportunity to reach a
  new set of like minded programmers and expand the open source bioinformatics

- Codefest at the Bioinformatics Open Source Conference -- This year BOSC is
  taking place in Berlin from July 19-20 and we'll have a two day coding session
  before the conference. This is the 4th year of Codefests and they've proven to
  be a productive and fun time to work collectively on open source projects.
