We recently announced that PyCon India 2021 will be organized online,
and we have already started prepping up for the conference. We have also
opened our talks and workshops CFP for potential speakers.
We want to start the process of selecting the Keynote Speakers for PyCon
India 2021. For people new to the conference, keynotes at PyCon India, are
inspiring talks from speakers that leave a lasting impact on the conference
attendees. The keynote speakers also help to tip the scales for people
having second thoughts about attending the conference. This increases
participation and enriches the overall experience of the conference.
We will have 4 keynote speakers this year. Please send in your keynote
speaker suggestion to the mailing list. Please send in one keynote speaker
suggestion per mail, containing a brief description of the speaker or
Speaker Bio-Link. If you like a speaker suggestion, use +1 style voting to
indicate a preference for a particular keynote speaker.
We are also using GitHub discussions to get all suggestions from the
community. Please share your keynote speaker suggestions in the GitHub
discussion here also.
We will start reaching out to keynote speakers in the order of preference
within the next few weeks.
In case you want to chime in for the PyCon India 2021 discussions, you
can join the #2021/discussion stream in PyCon India Zulip channel.

Hello Fedora India Community!
I am Akarsh S Shetty, Senior Year IT Undergrad from Kerala.
I've been using GNU/Linux as my primary OS for around 2+ years. I recently switched to Fedora as it is a Community based distro backed by RH/IBM.
I am deeply interested in Software Development, DevOps, and Machine Learning. I am skilled in Python, C/C++, Web Technologies, Databases. I have even tried compiling a Linux kernel from scratch, following the Kernel Development course from Linux Foundation. Apart from that, I have done several projects like GUI
FOSS/FLOSS has always fascinated me and I learned several things and still continue to learn stuff daily. I am really amazed at how the GNU/Linux community works in general. Their philosophies, User/Developer engagement, and the huge community of users surprise me.
I want to contribute back to this amazing distro and its community. I'd like to take initiative with some good first issues, minor bugs, maintenance, testing, etc.
I would love to explore Kernel Development as well as try to learn to build GTK apps.
You are kindly invited to the meeting:
