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.

💶Call for Sponsors

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.

We will offer a 10% discount for early bird sponsors! Sign up by 29th April to take advantage! Head over to: https://europython.eu/sponsors

💖Community Partners

We’re constantly looking for ways to strengthen our ties with the developers and communities on-ground. We’re psyched to announce our Community partners programme for communities across the island of Ireland.

As part of the programme, we’d like to connect with you and help you connect with like-minded others around Europe. Our team are planning many exciting activities. Apart from featuring you in our newsletter, we also invite your group attending the conference to the Irish Tech Community Mixer event, and guest post on our dev.to. By sharing, let’s amplify our knowledge and love for Python and Open Source in Ireland!
