PyCon India 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
We’re incorporating workgroup structure which will take responsibility of getting things done for various teams of PyCon India 2018.
Workgroup - Core group of people responsible for the execution of tasks mandated for a given team. The workgroup
is also responsible for setting guidelines on the team's working.
Volunteers - The workgroup along with the volunteers execute the various tasks in the shape and form as agreed within the workgroup. Each Volunteer team will consist of people from the Workgroup who will assign tasks and manage the group.
If you're interested in volunteering, join us on our Discord channel, subscribe to the mailing list. Please don't subscribe to the daily digest. Digests are always behind the time and meant for those who just wants to stay updated and not participate in conversations. If you're already subscribed to the mailing list, go ahead, login and change your subscription type. Also, please don't reply to a digest.
To ease the communication between different volunteer teams, we have decided to use Discord as our chat platform this year. Discord is a free to use chat platfrom where we can have different channels for discussion. It is quite popular in the open source community. For a more comfortable transition to Discord, please consider reading this document. Join the PyCon India 2018 Group from the link below
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 talk to us at the discord channel or send an email to the mailing list.
Hope to see you at the event. Happy volunteering. :)
