Updates from PyCon Pune, 12th January

This is a small post about PyCon Pune 2017. We had our weekly volunteers meet on 12th January in the hackerspace. You can view all the open items in the GitHub issue tracker. I am writing down the major updates below:


We have already reached the ideal number of registrations for the conference. The registration will be closed tomorrow, 15th of January. This will help us to know the exact number of people attending, thus enabling us to provide the better facility.

Hotel and travel updates

All international speakers booked their tickets, the visa application process is going on.

Child care

Nisha made a contact with the Angels paradise academy for providing childcare.

T-shirts for the conference

T-shirts will be ordered by coming Tuesday. We want to have a final look at the material from a different vendor on this Sunday.

Speakers’ dinner

Anwesha is working on identifying the possible places.

Food for the conference

Nisha and Siddhesh identified Rajdhani as a possible vendor. They also tried out the Elite Meal box, and it was sufficient for one person. By providing box lunches, it will be faster and easier to manage the long lunch queues.

Big TODO items

  • Design of the badge.
  • Detailed instruction for the devsprint attendees.

Next meeting time

From now on we will be having two volunteers meet every week. The next meet is tomorrow 3pm, at the hackerspace. The address is reserved-bit, 337, Amanora Chambers (Above Amanora Mall), Hadapsar, Pune.
