As part of our Code of Conduct process we’re publishing a transparency report about how we dealt with our Code of Conduct, any incidents at the conference and our response, and lessons learned.
In this blog post, we want to say a few words about the accessibility of our conference events. At the same time, we want to introduce you to some companies and organizations that have been supporting us financially in implementing these efforts.
After you’ve met our Platinum sponsor GoDaddy in our last blogpost, we want to take a moment to introduce you to some more of our sponsors who made a major contribution to the success of this conference. Without them, tickets to the conference would have been much more expensive and we wouldn’t be able to hold the conference to the standards you know. Most sponsors will be present at the even! Please take a minute to talk to them and thank them for supporting the conference and that it really makes a difference – to all of us.
We’re very grateful GoDaddy is supporting our conference as the platinum sponsor. With this blogpost, GoDaddy would like to introduce themselves to you – and why they are sponsoring DjangoCon Europe.
We have released our schedule – take a look!
After our hard working review team has decided on talks, and the selected speakers have confirmed their participation, we’re excited to announce our speaker lineup!
DjangoCon Europe is coming fast – we hope you got your travel and accommodation booked already. If you did not, we secured some rooms at a small number of hotels to make sure they don’t sell out too soon.
Good news – many of you have already purchased their DjangoCon Europe ticket! In fact, we have nearly as many registration for the sprints (which are on the last two days of DjangoCon Europe) as the venue can sustain.
If you’re not travelling from inside the EU/Schengen area to Heidelberg, you may need a visa to enter Germany.
We’re extending our CfP and opportunity grant application deadlines in support of the global diversity CfP day!
Reviewing the talks and tutorials submitted to a conference can be a daunting task – there is much to consider, and usually there are more great submissions than there are slots available in the conference schedule.
As our CfP goes into its second half, we’re ready to announce speaker mentors – they provide help and advice if you’re not sure what to submit to DjangoCon Europe.
Lots and lots of good news – today is the start of both our ticket sale and our Call for Participation, so no matter if you want to be a regular participant or a speaker, now’s the time to get started (while the Early Bird tickets last)!
We are happy and excited to show you our current plans for DjangoCon Europe 2018! A lot is still bound to change, and we will put up more information over time, but we have fixed the dates and the locations, and our general timeline.
