To a large extent, the 22C3 is a volunteer-driven event. We call the volunteers “Angels” and many odd jobs that need to be done at the congress rely on them. Angels don’t really get financial benefits, but they are rewarded for their enthusiastic and heroic actions with a free t-shirt and catering. If you want to join them, you’ll find everything you need to know in the Angel FAQ at our public wiki.
But wait, there’s more. This year, we want to have people helping out with one specific task. We have hundreds of talks at the conference. Last year, speakers just came unto the stage without an introduction, which we found sub-optimal for the audience. We want to change that and introduced a new volunteer job we dubbed “heralds” (cute, eh?). Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to say just a few words before every speaker (one or two sentences). We are looking for people with an intelligible pronunciation in both English and German who won’t die because of shame when addressing a larger audience. Sounds possible? If so, apply at
