Thank YOU

The journey to Prague encompassed a full year of exploration, diligent effort, and unwavering dedication. Our exceptional team made it together with warmth, compassion, humour and creativity! A heartfelt appreciation extends to all those who took part in crafting EuroPython 2023 Prague & Remote.

EuroPython 2023 was organised entirely by a devoted group of volunteers, a tradition upheld since 2002. Without further ado, let us meet the fantastic humans who dedicated numerous hours and boundless affection into shaping EuroPython 2023!

The EPS 2023 Board were responsible for most of the fiscal, legal and venue related work for the EuroPython 2023 conference, including venue & supplier selections and contract negotiations.
