Welcome to the first EuroPython Newsletter! We hope to regularly share with you news about the EuroPython Society, updates on the upcoming EuroPython conference and cool Python things happening around us!
📝 EuroPython Society Update
EPS 2021-2022 Board
The last General Assembly (GA) took place on 10 Oct 2021, when our members elected a new board. You can learn more about each of them here or catch up with the GA recording.
The entire board are very excited to continue serving the community! Drop an email any time for any improvement ideas, fun projects they should know about or just say hi!
2021 Q4 Fellows
We are overjoyed to announce the Q4 EuroPython Fellows: Giovanni Bajo, John Pinner (posthumously), Rob Collins (posthumously), Valeria Pettorino, Harald Armin Massa, Marc-André Lemburg, Artur Czepiel and Patrick Guido Arminio.
You can read about their contributions to the Society and the conferences, and join us in raising a toast to them!
🍀 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!
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!

🐍 Cool Python Projects
We will be regularly asking you to share cool python projects you’ve come across through our Friday Recommendations tweets, so do look out for those! In the meantime, here are a few our EuroPython team have liked:
- dataklasses: a library that allows you to quickly define data classes using Python type hints.
- typingx: leverage typing types at runtime to check the shape of your data either in application code or while testing!
- Pixray: an image generation system that combines ideas including Perception Engines , CLIP guided GAN imagery with modifications such as CLIPDraw, and Useful ways of navigating latent space from Sampling Generative Networks.
- Spanish translation of Python Docs: 100% completed!🥳 You can learn more about how to contribute here: https://python-docs-es.readthedocs.io/es/3.10/CONTRIBUTING.html
- Hugging Face Machine Learning for Audio Study Group: explore the field of applied Machine Learning in the Audio domain through a series of presentations, paper reading and discussions
- coqui TTS: a library for advanced Text-to-Speech generation. It comes with pretrained models for measuring dataset quality and is already used in 20+ languages for projects.
- Minitorch: a DIY teaching library for machine learning engineers who wish to learn about the internal concepts underlying deep learning systems. It is a pure Python re-implementation of the Torch API designed to be simple, easy-to-read, tested, and incremental.
