PyBay has 25 work-trade roles for friendly, helpful folks who can work well without a lot of guidance and solve problems with a positive attitude. Generally, the majority of your work will happen during the main conference days, August 11-13. A few folks will be helping during the pre-conference workshop days, August 10-11. During your shift(s), we hope you'll have fun and wear the conference crew T-shirt with pride. We're counting on our crew to help make sure everyone has a great experience, and you'll play a key role in helping PyBay become a Bay Area tradition.
Most work-trade crew will help about 6 hours during the main conference days with:
- Room hosting for 3 sessions - make sure speaker shows up, upload their slide deck to pybay's g-drive, introduce speaker, host Q&A, hunt down AV techs or trouble shoot other issues in the room- ~3 hours of various shifts - handle registration/ask me, be a floater, set up/take down signs/decorations, stuff swag bag
If you have demonstrated skills in photography, social media, marketing, or other areas that will help make PyBay a success, we may be able to create a special role for you instead of, or in addition to, the responsibilities above.
Work-trade conference tickets cost $100. Once accepted, you'll pay $200 up-front, and once you perform your agreed-upon tasks, you'll receive a $100 reimbursement at the end of the conference.
We will send an email by August 1st so you can signup for your work-trade shifts. We'd recommend that you familiar yourselves with the talks ahead of time to increase your chance of hosting the talks you want to see
