πŸ€ EuroPython 2022 Conference Update

We have resumed discussions with the team at The CCD in Dublin. Reacquainting ourselves with The CCD’s beautiful rooms, food & beverages offerings, we have our fingers firmly crossed for EuroPython 2022 to finally take place in Dublin on 11-17 July!

πŸ’‘
We are also investigating hybrid options to cater to the Pythonistas that cannot join us in Dublin. If you come across any hybrid solutions that impressed you, hit the reply button and share them with us! πŸ’–

We have also been making some changes to the internal volunteer team structure. We hope to share more details in February and start working with you to build EuroPython 2022!
