We spent 2 hours going through the Code Of Conduct, Issues Handling, and conference day Playbook documents before walking around campus making final checks for registration tables, lunch arrangements and other logistics issues.

The students have elected among themselves a volunteer leader to act as a manager assigning the various roles to other volunteers.

Thank you to IUMW for allowing us to work with the students, and thank you to our volunteers for their help to make PyCon MY 2016 a comfortable and successful conference.

The Faculty of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics IUMW is also around 520 meters from the Putra Komuter train station, and will take you around 7 minutes to walk from the station to the faculty building.
