(Posting on behalf of Rupa Dachere, CodeChix Founder)
I had the great pleasure of attending PyCon 2012 earlier this year and cannot express how fantastic it was. I’m not much of a Python coder (yet) but going to PyCon infused and inspired me to an extent that I’m going to be writing a proposal for 2013!
So, CodeChix will be volunteering in a huge way at PyCon 2013. It is going to be in Santa Clara at the Santa Clara Convention Center from March 13 – 21, 2013 – right in our back yard. I believe I will get some passes which I will distribute to key volunteers.
So, please sign up for the following if you can:
1. Bag stuffing – filling bags with schwag in an assembly line fashion
2. Registration – helping with registration – note that the timings are not firm yet and can change closer to the conf date
3. Program committee – help out with organizing the conference.
It’s still a long way off, but, I wanted to put it on people’s radar so that you can plan for it. It is a great opportunity to learn, network and contribute.
Please let me know if you would like to volunteer and which categories you would like to volunteer for (1-3) above. I will collate a list and coordinate accordingly.
Expectations are that you will be representing CodeChix (wear a t-shirt or some other promo stuff), be punctual and do your part, have fun and learn a lot. If you can share some of your experience with the group after the conference, that would be awesome.
Of course, if you are a Python dev (or, like me, are attempting to be), please do submit a proposal for a talk – that would be super cool.
May the code be with you!
