Hi Yarko, hi Rami,

My name is Hannes and I am volunteering for the PyCon poster committee. I
wanted to introduce to you Chris Freeman (in CC) who is the author of an
open source volunteer app (fully written in Django). Chris' app streamlines
the volunteer coordination (registration, shift selection, announcements,
etc.). The app is free and was field-tested in various conferences (e.g.
multiple years of Open Source Bridge, local Python conference PyDX, and
soon used by the TechNW conference).

I noticed that the volunteer coordination last year was mostly based on
spreadsheets, so maybe you can give Chris' open source project a try. He is
also an active member of the local Python group and could provide tech
support during the conference or with the app deployment.

Maybe the community around this amazing open source project could grow if
more people could see the app in action at PyCon.

If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to Chris (
Chris.freeman.pdx at gmail.com).

See you at PyCon in Portland,

Hannes Hapke
