EuroPython is organized by the EuroPython Workgroups (WGs), reporting directly to the EuroPython Society Board. This page will list all the workgroups and their members to highlight their involvement with the EuroPython 2017 conference.
Speaking of involvement: We can always use more help. If you’re interested, please go to the EuroPython Workgroups (WGs) page and follow the instructions there to get signed up. Many thanks !
