DjangoCon Europe 2020 Announcement
We are happy to announce that DjangoCon Europe 2020 will take place in Porto, Portugal 🇵🇹! The website is already online at 2020.djangocon.eu and it will be kept up to date with the latest updates. Don't forget to follow @djangoconeurope on Twitter.
The dates are already confirmed (don't rush into buying everything so soon because we'll have discounts for DjangoCon attendees!):
- Conference: May 27-29 (Wednesday-Friday)
- Sprints/Workshops: May 30 and 31 (Saturday and Sunday)
There is a lot to do, but it's very much worth it – DjangoCon Europe is an extremely friendly, open, inclusive, and informative (for beginners and advanced users alike) conference. Here are some themes and examples of activities and responsibilities that we seek help with:
- Communications: Press, community relations, announcements, social media, attendee tools, volunteer coordination
- Support and hospitality: Helpdesk, attendee support contact, visa help, travel management, chat support for attendees, on-site volunteer organization, speaker support
- Financial Aid: Setup, grant selection, aid organization
- Sponsors: Outreach to companies, organizing their logistics at the event and other types of visibility
- Program: Committee work, talk selection, scheduling, session chairs, sprint/open space/keynote/lightning talks session organization
- Code of Conduct: Drafting documents, handling of requests and issues
- Diversity advocate: Accessibility considerations, outreach on-site
Join us regardless of your prior experience: this is also an opportunity to learn! In other words, you don't have to be an expert to join. Neither are we experts in hosting such a big event … yet!
Your location prior to the event is not significant. We can do all things that need to be done in Porto ourselves. The only important thing is that you have the energy and free time to help organize a wonderful DjangoCon Europe. The official language of all these prior activities will be English, as well as the conference itself.Back to Top
