EuroPython June 2022 Newsletter

Howdy-doody!

Time flies like an arrow! Can you hear them buzzing? Only ten days to go until the conference. Our days right now start with discord pings, are full of zoom meetings and google hangouts and end with “Crap! we forgot to send that email”. Then, repeat it all over again. We’re nervously sprinting towards a cross-timezone, multi-cultural culmination of time, effort and experience at EuroPython.

This will be our last update ahead of the conference. We’ll be back in July with a conference recap and our vision for the newsletter ahead (if you have any suggestions, send us those at news@europython.eu).
Alright, enough said! We hope you enjoy this newsletter as much as we enjoyed penning it down.

📝 EuroPython Society Update


🧠 EuroPython Society discussion at EuroPython

We would like to use the conference days to talk to all of you and other members of the community to gather ideas about our conference series and other EPS initiatives.
In particular, How do you think EPS can serve the needs of our thriving community? How can we make EuroPython more inclusive and diverse? To do so, we’ll organise an informal discussion session on Thursday 14th July in the Open Space at EuroPython. We'll announce the exact time soon.

Bring your thoughts, comments, questions and ideas!! Hope to see many of you!

🥗 Organisers’ Lunch @ EuroPython

Are you coming to EuroPython and you are a community organiser of Python or Open Source events? Join us for an informal lunch at the conference! We will have food and discussions on 14 July at 13:00. You can let us know if you are interested in emailing board@europython.eu, or just showing up on the day!

📅 General Assembly postponed

The board has decided to postpone the General Assembly until after the conference to give us more time to prepare and plan. We’ll keep you updated on the new date.

🍀 EuroPython 2022 Conference Update

🐍 EuroPython at a glance!

~115 sessions - Across the Python experience spectrum and through all tracks (featuring a dedicated CPython, PyData, Web, Testing, Community track and much more), we have put together an intriguing set of talks for you to enjoy. Check them all out at https://ep2022.europython.eu/sessions

12 tutorials - From looking at Python under the hood to building production-ready GraphQL API to Train your Graphics card & Build with Audio. No matter what you’re interested in, we’ve got something for you. Piqued your interest? Head over to the full list here: https://ep2022.europython.eu/tutorials

8 Special events - EuroPython is much bigger than *just* talks and tutorials. We’ll have multitudes of events running parallel to the event. Check them out here to get to know more about it and how you can participate:

4 Keynotes - EuroPython wouldn’t be complete without showcasing some of the brightest voices leading our community talking about the current challenges we face and offering their take on them. Interested in knowing more about what they’ll talk about? https://ep2022.europython.eu/keynoters

Meet our awesome Keynoters!

3 Panels - All three days of the conference will feature star-studded and thought-provoking panel discussions on the topics that matter most. We’ll start with a CPython panel with some of our favourite core devs, followed by the Diversity and Inclusion panel on Thursday with our friends from The PSF and conclude with an Education panel with a Pythonic focus on Friday.

🌍 Join EuroPython from anywhere!

EuroPython is a conference for the community, by the community. In these ever-so-changing times, we know that it might not be feasible for everyone to make it to Dublin and attend the conference in person. That’s why EuroPython is running hybrid this year. We’ll have remote speakers as well as attendees.

⚠️
You can now take advantage of all the talks and panels right at the comfort of your home. Head over to https://ep2022.europython.eu/tickets to get yours now!

P.S. We’re offering financial aid for those who may benefit from them. Head over to https://ep2022.europython.eu/finaid to apply now! The deadline is 3rd July.

💝 Want to engage more deeply with EuroPython & our community?


🌌 Open Space
We believe that conversations flow better when provided with a dedicated space to present your ideas, and host discussions and prototype insights together.

The conference will feature an Open Space from 13th-15th July. Any ticket holder will be able to reserve a time block there and propose an activity for other attendees to participate in.

P.S. Be early, the space tends to get overbooked soon ;)

🖥 OSS Tables
Are you an Open Source library/ organisation and would like a dedicated table to showcase your work and engage with the attendees? Then say no more and send us an email at sponsoring@europython.eu (limited spots, first come first serve basis).

⚡ Lightning Talks
A EuroPython wouldn’t be EuroPython without its goofy, byte-sized 5-minute entertaining Lightning talks. All the 3 conference days (13th-15th July) will feature Lightning Talks. Best part? Anyone can propose one! Get your groove on already and start putting ideas and stitching slides together.
No separate registration is needed, just submit a topic and put your name on the white scratchboard in the forum.

✨ Humans of EuroPython!

EuroPython won’t be what it is without the brilliant people that put in their time and effort. Every little contribution matters, calling vendors during lunch breaks, taking a trip across Europe to inventory our storage, taking team calls from a bar ;) and much more. Being a volunteer is not easy and we want to showcase the people striving to put together a better and more inclusive environment for our thriving community.

Humans of EuroPython is an initiative to showcase such voices. It’ll be a monthly issue (just like this newsletter) with an interview-style chat with our volunteers.

For our inaugural blog post, we spotlight Laís (@lais_bsc), where she tells us about her volunteering, Python Ireland and what she's up to right now.
https://blog.europython.eu/a-chat-with-lais-carve/

Our second edition contains words of wisdom by Naomi (@NaomiCeder), who needs no introduction. She reflects on the work of Trans*Code and thoughtfully reveals a trans perspective on what it's like to be in our community.
https://blog.europython.eu/pythonista-spotlight-naomi-ceder/

🤗 A big thanks to our Sponsors!

EuroPython won’t be possible without the support of our fantastic sponsors. We’re beyond psyched that we’ll be able to hang by their booths at the conference. Grab some cool sponsor swag? Discuss some interesting job offers? And participate in some fun giveaways!

Our sponsors are what help us make EuroPython affordable for everyone!

🤙 Editor's note

Hey hey! If you made it this far, then first of all thanks. I am Vaibhav/ VB (@reach_vb), a volunteer with the EuroPython 2022 team. Throughout this year I’ve had a small role in putting these Newsletters together. Personally, for me, these newsletters are much more than just a conference update, they provide an insight into the structured chaos that EuroPython is.

This is the 6th and the final edition before the conference. From January to today we've gone through quite a transformation. Ahead of the conference, I’d like to highlight and thank everyone who helped put this series together (in alphabetical order):

Artur Czepiel (@artcz)
Diego Russo (@diegor)
Laís Carvalho (@lais_bsc)
Raquel Dou (raquel@europython.eu)
Sebastiaan Zeeff (@SebastiaanZeeff)
Vicky Twomey-Lee (@whykay)
Yasmin Morshed (@yasmin_codes)

They are all a fantastic bunch of people and it was/ is an honour to have the privilege of working with them. Find these people during the conference (or online)  and give them a hug, a cookie and thank them for their hard work!

Alright, enough sentimental stuff! The Newsletter is here to stay, but we’re keen to hear your suggestions and feedback on how we can make it more useful for you. Send us your ideas at news@europython.eu or find us at the conference.

See you at the conference, on social or in your inbox soon,

VB on behalf of the EuroPython Organisers

EuroPython May 2022 Newsletter

Hey hey!

Is it just us? Or is the time really just flying by. We’re 40 days away from D-Day & our volunteers have been working tirelessly where the rubber meets the asphalt.

The past month has been quite eventful, we have sent out talk acceptances, onboarded 14 sponsors, announced some of our keynote speakers (more to follow). Without further ado, we present to you the penultimate newsletter before the conference.

📝EuroPython Society Update


Updates to Code of Conduct Committee

We have two more people joining our Code of Conduct (CoC) Committee ahead of the 2022 conference: Naomi Ceder and Kevin O'Brien, on top of Silvia Uberti and Anders Hammarquist. Should you need to reach out to them, their contact details are present alongside the CoC.

We’re continually looking for ways to make EuroPython better and provide a safer environment at the conference. If you have any suggestions then write to us on board@europython.eu.

Grants? Grants!

EPS is committed to help the thriving Python community in Europe prosper. Following our goal we gave out some grants over the last month:: DjangoCon Europe, Hands-on Django with PyLadiesBCN.

🎗️
The EPS wants to share our love for the community by giving out even more grants! If you need support for your local event or conference, get in touch with us: grants@europython.eu. Read more about our grants program here: https://www.europython-society.org/grants

General Assembly & What is EPS session?

It takes a village to raise a child, it definitely takes much more to keep gears spinning at the EuroPython Society. Want in on the behind the scenes action? We’ve got you covered.

We are preparing for our General Assembly that will take place during the conference. Members will receive emails about the details. If you are interested in knowing more about the EPS, the board election and how you can get involved, we are hosting a public session on 14 June: 18:00 CEST). Everyone is welcome to attend! Details will be sent out on our newsletter and socials.

🌍Remote Tickets for EuroPython

EuroPython is a conference for the community, by the community. In these ever-so-changing times we know that it might not be feasible for everyone to make it to Dublin and attend the conference in-person. That’s why EuroPython will be hybrid this year. We’ll have remote speakers as well as attendees.

We’re pleased to announce the details of the online tickets. We’ll have two tiers:

  • Personal - If you enjoy Python as a hobbyist or a freelancer
  • Business - If your company/business is paying for you or if you use Python professionally.

📝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 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 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! 💖

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!
