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
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
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.
