Call for Volunteers is open now !
PyConf Hyderabad is a community event. Here each and every task is done by a volunteer. And here is the opportunity for You to be a part of the community.
But before you register to volunteer, there are few things you should be aware of
Volunteering takes time and effort, sometimes a lot of it. For online activities like handling social networks or handling registrations etc take a lot of time. And sometimes rapid decisions have to be made. So if you’re volunteering, make sure you have the time. If you’re unavailable at certain time period of the day, let us know beforehand.
If you’re volunteering for offline activities e.g. on spot registration or settings up stages or handling video recording, anything that has to be done on the venue during the event, there is a good chance that you won’t be able to attend the sessions you just registered for. If someone needs you, you have to be there.
Volunteering is not a free way into the event. At PyConf Hyderabad, everybody buys tickets. Even the event organizers buy tickets. We volunteer because we love Python and Python Conferences, and want the event to be awesome.
Volunteers are the most important part of the event. Without the volunteers, the event cannot happen. So even if you are attending PyConf for the first time, we encourage you to volunteer with whatever you can. If you don’t want to miss any sessions, then volunteer for smaller tasks.
If you’re still interested in volunteering, here is what you should do next:
Subscribe to our mailing list.
Register for volunteering in this form. We’ll add you to the volunteer communication channel where you can pickup tasks as they are posted.
Also, if you have any question, we’d really appreciate if you go through the mailing list archives first, and see if it’s already answered. If not, you can send an email to the mailing list.
Hope to see you at the event. Happy volunteering. :)
