DjangoCon US would not be possible without the hundreds of hours of volunteers have put in over the past year. We’re thrilled to have a mix of returning and new faces on our organizing team. Together, the organizers for DjangoCon US are making sure that the conference is welcoming, accessible, friendly to beginners, safe, diverse, affordable, and has the greatest talk and tutorial lineup.
The organizers listed here aren’t the only volunteers, of course. We’d like to give a huge shoutout to everyone who’s contributed to our GitHub repository (which includes code and documentation contributions, filing bug reports, and answering questions); everyone who’s suggested improvements to the website and conference over email and on Twitter; the people who’ve helped us with outreach by reaching out to meetups and organizations they’re part of; the maintainers and contributors to the Django Project and the vast ecosystem of related open source projects that make up so much of the conference and sprints; and the onsite volunteers who will serve as sessions chairs and runners, swag bag stuffers, and sprints mentors. We couldn’t do this without your help.
