What’s the application deadline?2020-02-26T17:08:46+01:00

The application deadline for WeAreDevelopers World Congress 2020 is the 26th of March 2020.

When will I know if I am selected?2020-02-13T11:59:46+01:00

We will contact you in about three weeks after the application deadline.

Are the volunteers occupied the whole day during the event?2020-02-19T14:05:08+01:00

We try to build the schedule in a way that you work a couple of hours and then you have free time. We also try to consider the talks you want to see and so you don’t have shifts during these times.

Would there be enough time to listen to talks?2020-02-13T11:59:55+01:00

Yes, yes and yes. You will be working in shifts, so you will have time to listen to talks and check the expo area every couple of hours. Our team leaders always consider your interests.

Can I apply, if I can only attend one day?2020-02-13T12:00:02+01:00

Yes, of course. We give priority to the people who can for sure attend both days, but you can still apply. We always need helping hands ;)

I am not from Berlin. Will my expenses for travel and accommodation be covered?2020-02-13T12:02:17+01:00

We are covering drinks and food at the festival venue during the setup day and the congress days, but we do not cover travel and accommodation. We are happy to connect you with our partner hotels for discount rates. You can also connect with volunteers from Berlin to get a free sleeping place.

What meetings do I need to attend prior to the event?2020-02-13T12:00:11+01:00
A couple of weeks before the event there will be one kickoff meeting in Berlin which will be live-streamed (you do not need to be in Berlin for it). At this meeting, we will answer all open questions and you will find out in which team you will be. Before this meeting, our volunteer manager will provide you with all the relevant information per email.
