EuroPython March 2022 Newsletter

Hey hey!

To say that March went by quickly would be an understatement. Our volunteers have been working round the clock to put together a fantastic conference. We’ve been busy launching the Call for Proposals, Ticket sales and the AMA session for first-time speakers. Read along to find out more about them.

📝EuroPython Society Update

Ukraine Donation

Last month we asked you about how EuroPython Society can help our community in these trying times. We are pleased to inform you that we made a total of 10,000 EUR donation split equally between UNICEF and UNHCR. These donations will be matched 100% by a local Swedish organisation, thus doubling the amount.

Over the last month, we are relieved to hear many of our friends are safe. 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 affected communities, drop us a line at board@europython.eu

Trans*Code @ EuroPython

EuroPython Society champions diversity & inclusion. In line with our mission of making EuroPython and Python more accessible to everyone, especially the underrepresented folks, we have decided to host a Trans*Code event at our 2022 conference - Trans*Code is an informal hackday & workshop event which aims to help draw attention to transgender issues and opportunities.

The event is open to trans and non-binary folk, allies, coders, designers and visionaries of all sorts. We are privileged to have Noami Ceder on board to help and advise us with the organisation. Although she is experienced and awesome, it takes more than one to sow the seeds of pluralism.  

We want to make EuroPython 2022 an exceptionally welcoming place for trans people and other marginalised ones. If you identify as trans or non-binary and would like to volunteer your experience and time to help us organise the event and achieve our goal, please write to volunteers@europython.eu; or to our EuroPython Society chair, raquel@europython.eu (if you need to discuss something more private). If you are an ally, help us spread the word and lend us your support.

EuroPython 2022 will be held in-person this year, allowing our community to safely reconnect,  network, learn, share ideas, and create new relationships and partnerships.

Sponsors are what make EuroPython possible. Without our sponsors, EuroPython would not be the success that it is. With EuroPython back in-person this year, we’re excited to be able to provide our sponsors with opportunities to connect with and support the Python community, be face-to-face with talented developers and job recruits, access a large and diverse audience, and elevate their visibility and corporate identity within the Python community.

We’re offering 7 main packages with an aim to keep EuroPython accessible to most organisations keen to help the community.

The EuroPython Team

EuroPython 2022: Call for Proposals, Financial Aid & Mentorship Programme Open

Hello Pythonistas,

Whoever coined the phrase “All good things come in three”, was definitely right. After months of discussion, juggling between various platforms and multiple revisions, the EuroPython 2022 team are really excited to launch the Call for Proposals (CFP), Speaker Mentorship Programme & the Financial Aid applications.

📢Call for Proposals

We're happy to announce the EuroPython 2022 Call for Proposals (CFP) and are accepting proposals for talks, training sessions, workshops, panels, poster sessions, helpdesks and other interactive sessions at EuroPython 2022.

🚨
We will leave the CFP open from today (8th March) until

Sunday, 27th March, 23:59:59 AoE (anywhere on earth).

The conference will feature around 20 tutorials/workshops and 120 talk sessions:

  • 11-12 July: four tracks of tutorials/workshops
  • 13-15 July: four tracks of talk sessions of Python general topics on e.g. Programming, Software Engineering, Cloud, DevOps, Web, Django
  • 13-15 July: two tracks of talk sessions of PyData related topics

We're looking for proposals on all aspects of Python from novice to advanced level, including but not limited to: applications, frameworks, Data Science, internals or topics which you're excited about, your experiences with Python and its ecosystem and creative or artistic things you've done with Python.

EuroPython is a community conference and we're eager to hear about how you use Python in your professional and personal activities. We especially encourage first-time submissions by speakers from under-represented backgrounds and more submissions with an advanced level scope for EuroPython 2022.

We’re looking forward to reviewing your proposals and having you at the conference: https://program.europython.eu/europython-2022/cfp

Our programme team are happy to answer any questions/ queries you may have: program@europython.eu

👩‍🎓👨‍🎓Speaker Mentoring Programme

Are you a seasoned speaker and want to mentor people? Are you considering submitting a proposal to EuroPython 2022 and would like guidance on your proposal?

If you answered yes to either of these questions, this Mentorship Programme is for you!

The purpose of this programme is to pair experienced speakers with those seeking guidance, especially those from under-represented backgrounds. Proposals could be for tutorials, talks, training, workshops and posters. Mentees may be in different stages of their proposal writing and may need help with different aspects of their proposal.

We’re also looking for experienced speakers to join as mentors to help answer questions folks may have about their proposal.

Mentors will also help the first time speakers better understand what information goes into the proposal form. Last but not the least, they’ll review their mentees’ proposal drafts.

🚨
The Mentorship Programme will accept applications till 20 March, 2022. The mentor-mentee will then be matched via email. The mentees will then have one week to work on their proposal with their assigned mentors.

You can find more information about the programme and the link to sign up here:

Got any questions? Drop us a line at program@europython.eu

P.S. We also have a couple of sessions planned for writing effective proposals and how to deliver effective presentations.
