PyCon India is India's largest gathering of Programmers for the Python programming language.
- Thanks to the Wuhan virus, PyCon 2020 and 2021 were online conferences. PyCon 2022 did not happen. After four years, PyCon India is back to its offline, in-person conference from 29 September to 2 October 2023.
- I was the CFP workgroup leader and core group member this time.
- In addition to this, on the conference day, I was executing the following roles:
- Registration Desk for attendees briefly.
- Session monitor in Auditorium on day 3 of the conference.
- Session chair at various tracks throughout the conference.
- I was one of the CFP reviewers. I reviewed around 100 talk proposals out of ~300 submitted. I have also reviewed Lightning Talks and Poster presentations.
