Hello fellow Pythonistas,
We apologise for the delay in the release of the February newsletter. Our heart goes out to everyone affected by the humanitarian crisis, especially members of our community. We stand by our community and will continue to provide any support we can whatever happens.
We'll continue with our everyday activities in supporting Python communities across Europe. If you have any suggestions on specific ways to directly help our community affected by the conflict, drop us a line at email@example.com
📝EuroPython Society Update
New-ish Team Structure
This year, we have made some changes to our traditional Workgroup Structure in place between 2015-2021. We aim to have a more balanced workload between contributors in different teams and give more autonomy to them while reducing the silos between teams.
We hope you like it. If you have any suggestions, email us: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Better yet, read on to see how to volunteer and make everything better together with us!
🍀EuroPython 2022 Conference Update
After 2 years of meeting our Python friends over Zoom, Matrix and Discord, we are now committed to an in-person conference (with a hybrid setup) at The CCD in Dublin on 11-17th July!
🗣Call for Proposals (CFP)
We are psyched to announce that we’ll launch our CFP on March 8th, 2022.
We're looking for proposals on every aspect of Python: programming from novice to advanced levels, applications, and frameworks, or how you have been involved in introducing Python into your organisation. EuroPython is a community conference and we are eager to hear about your experience.
More details to follow on our newsletter, blog, and socials. Stay tuned!
💲Call for Sponsors
EuroPython will be held in-person this year in the mega tech-hub Dublin.
Without our sponsors, EuroPython won’t be the success that it is. With us back in-person, we’re excited to provide our sponsors with opportunities to connect with and support the Python community.
With its combination of academic excellence, research labs, and world-leading technology companies, Ireland makes for a thriving place for deep tech. As a sponsor of EuroPython 2022, the opportunities to promote yourself and support a great open-source community here will be second to none.
We will release our exciting sponsor packages in early March. If you are interested in sponsoring drop us a line already at email@example.com
👩🏻🤝🧑🏽Call for Volunteers
EuroPython is organised and run by volunteers from the Python community. We always appreciate more help, more diverse voices to make the conference run smoothly and thoughtfully.
Donating your time for free is a big ask. But in return, you will be given a safe space to contribute your thoughts and work to shaping the conference to be for the community and of the community. And hopefully, you will also have a lot of fun in the process with our amazing team!
We’re working hard to make EuroPython accessible to all. We’ll have more information about the tickets and the prices by mid-March.
Keeping the tradition from previous conferences, we’ll again offer free tickets to Python Core developers as part of our Guido van Rossum Core Developer Grant and our newly established EuroPython Fellows. We will also have an open invitation to organisers responsible for other Python conferences around Europe to attend lunch with us at The CCD. Stay tuned for more information!
Have any questions in the meantime? Hit us up at firstname.lastname@example.org
