Volunteers

bolun+tir+s+

PyCon Philippines is run by volunteers. The previous PyCons would not have been successful without the help of these individuals. This year will not be different.


The spirit of volunteerism is what makes the Python community and tech events like PyCon distinctly inspiring.


We'd like to thank and recognize these people for stepping up to bring you PyCon Philippines 2023:
