it has been brought to my attention on the last night EMEA Ambassadors meeting that there is an opening for attending the EuroPython 2016 conference in Bilbao, Spain which takes place from July 17 to July 24. Users sesivany and giannisk mentioned this.
I'm very interested in going, and have been suggested to write about it here on the mailing list. I'm from Novi Sad, which is in Serbia so there are no Visa issues here for traveling to Spain. I'm also a student so I would get the student discount for the EuroPython ticket itself (EUR120 instead of EUR360).
As far as my Python expereince goes, I've been learning Python for the last couple of months mainly through the excellent courses on PluralSight (on a side note, I really recommend this if you can get your hands on the PluralSight subscription through your college), mainly the ones by A. Bingham and R. Smallshire as well as the courses on Flask and Django by Reindert-Jan Ekker. I've been focusing mostly on the Flask framework for now, because I like it the most. Since starting to learn Python by myself it quickly went from being just a fun language to play with to my language of choice for some of my projects opposed to C# and Java which are mostly used in my area and in which I'm more expereinced. I love Python and I would love to learn more about it. On my university there are no Python courses available, and the Python community here is minimal, sadly.
I've checked the cost of the plane ticket which is about EUR360 for the return ticket, and also accomodation will be arround EUR300. I can probably find cheaper accomodation just haven't had much time to look for it, but will do if there is a chance of me going.
Please note that this is, to me, a lot of money, and it is would be also OK that I pay for some part of my expenses.
Anyways to keep this short, if there is an opening or a chance for me to go to the conference, I would love to go. If I recall correctly, Fedora is sharing a booth there with Red Hat and I am open to volunteer as much as I can there and help as much as possible.
If there is indeed a chance to go to EuroPython, I will open a ticked on the EMEA tracker with a more detailed expenses summary, just wanted to ask here first.

We got greenflag today to the event Veletech 2016 (www.veletech.hu) on
9th April, approx. 1500-2000 visitors. There will be a booth for Fedora
and Mozilla. We do not have any DVDs or swags. Is there reason to get
Fedora 23 DVDs from someone nearby Hungary, or any other swags ?
