Digest #129

A big THANK YOU to Imprivata for becoming our newest partner! Imprivata is headquartered in Lexington, MA but they've got a local team of software developers right here in downtown Santa Cruz. They've got jobs posted on our jobs page.

As always, we have the news you need to know. Find out what's new at PayStand and Imprivata. Find out what Cabrillo Robotics Club is doing with NASA. Learn about three upcoming events: the 28th Annual Science & Engineering Fair on March 12, The Ethics of Artificial Intelligence on March 16, and Cruz Cares on April 6 (apply to pitch by March 12). And, here's a question I've been asked more than a couple times: What's up with Amazon in Santa Cruz?

All this, and more. Scroll down and start reading.
