my PyCon notes

I was at PyCon and it was my first PyCon, so I’ll talk about PyCon right now. It is surely beyond doubt that, PyCon is a great event. Before my notes on speakings, I want to mention about financial grant of the organisation. I received a financial grant to cover my transoceanic travel expenses, yay! Also, I did two volunteer works during conference. First, I helped registration desk stuff. Second, I worked on the pyladies stand that I sold approximately 20 pyladies t-shirts, also I met great persons during my volunteering time.

Now, speakings can take to the stage. First day I sit in on especially machine learning related speakings. (Talking titles refer to links, you can watch easily.)
