The meeting is conducted by Python engineers at the top of their field and the country is also selected based on the work of these very engineers in that area. The hosts have promised that this year’s edition will be bigger and more comprehensive than last year’s as it offers a diverse range of speakers, activities and involvement from the local Python community.

It offers an incredible opportunity for bussing engineers wanting to work in the field of Python designing to feed off the knowledge of these engineers and have various discussions with them. The event provides an amazing chance for renowned engineers to educate the young and new engineers and giving them advice accordingly. This would include discoursing on the analysis for Python and their own contribution to the language.
