EuroPython 2015: A few attendee tips

EuroPython will start next week. We will issue a number of blog posts with helpful tips and reminders this week to warm you up and also collect them on our page Tips for attendees.

Contacting fellow attendees

We have enabled a functionality on the website’s “Who’s coming” page, which lets you quickly send emails to other attendees who have opted in to receive messages from EuroPython attendees. Here’s how it works:

  1. Go to the “Who’s coming” page
  2. Find the attendee you’d like to contact
  3. Click on the envelope icon on the attendee’s badge
  4. Write the message and click “Send”

The message will be sent by the conference system. You don’t have to know the attendee’s email address.

The envelope icon will only appear for those attendees who have enabled receiving such messages in their privacy settings.

Please update your profile

In order to print badges and streamline the process of handing them out at the conference, we need your name for the ticket.

Please make sure you have entered all the necessary details on your profile page. This will save us a lot of work and you a lot of long queues.

Attendee wiki

We have set up a wiki page for attendees to self-organize and give other attendees helpful tips:

The wiki page is hosted on the wiki. If you want to edit the page, please see the front page for instructions (near the bottom of the page).

Planing and advertising sprints

If you are planing on running a sprint, you can enter the details on the sprints wiki page:

The editing process is the same as for the main EuroPython 2015 wiki page (see above).

More details on the EuroPython 2015 sprints are available on the sprints page.

Printing posters

If you are running a poster at the conference, you can either bring your poster with you or just take a PDF to one of the many printing shops in Bilbao to get it printed on site:
