June 2021 events are AWESOME!

Hey IDL friends - Your buddies in the STC IDL SIG have been pulling together several exciting events for June. We hope you can join us. Many events are open to all, even if you're not going to the Summit, even if you're not a SIG member, and even if you're not a member of STC. Here we go:

Social Event on Monday, June 7 at 7pm EDT

Please join the IDL SIG on Monday night of the Summit (June 7) after the magic show.

This event is free and you can invite your spouse or friends to attend as well (each participant needs their own camera, on a desktop, laptop or phone).
