PyConSK 2018 Experience

Having worked in Python for over a decade now, I thought it would be a great time to engage the community more meaningfully. I was looking for speaking at various Python events. The first one being the BayPIGGIES event on February 22nd 2018. Later, I was invited to speak at PyCon SK 2018 held in Bratislava from March 9-11 2018. My talk was similar to the one given in BayPIGGIES but slightly different. Public speaking wasn’t always my strengths but it’s always great to push yourself out of your comfort zone to do something new.

PyCon SK 2018 was an interesting experience. I definitely got to meet some really interesting and passionate people. Saw some amazing talks and I’m looking forward to the next year’s event. Of course I got to present my talk which was fantastic. The size of the audience was a bit daunting. I enjoyed meeting the nice folks of Slovakia.
