The word Sangamam /ˈsʌnɡʌmʌm/ means confluence in Tamil. Building on this, PySangamam is a conference, catering to the Python community of Tamil Nadu, a state in southern India.
We chose the word "Sangamam", because it captures the spirit of the conference, and hints on the regional nature of it. We were careful not to step-over the names of other Python conferences, regional or otherwise. Hope you like it!
People who use Python, and who would like to meet and learn from
other Python developers. You need to have a basic working knowledge
of Python, to make the best use of this conference.
BTW, Python is used by people from diverse backgrounds, and we hope to accomodate every one of them, including but not limited to scientists, mathematicians, web developers, embedded software developers, educators, desktop software developers, game programmers and mobile application developers.
We are planning to do, a 2-day single track conference. The talks will be 20 minutes each. We also plan to have a lightning talks session, where people can do short 5-min talks, a poster presentation session, where people can present ideas and projects, and have one-on-one interactions with other attendees.
For this year, we are planning to bring together 250 Pythonistas. We are planning to start small, and grow organically over the years.
PySangamam is organized primarily by the Chennai Python User Group, Chennaipy, with support from organizers of other local user groups. While the first edition is being planned in Chennai, we hope to run the conference in other cities within the state.
For now, we have a form, where you can register your name, contact details, and the areas you would like to contribute to. You will be contacted by the organizers, when we start work on those areas.
At PySangamam, everybody buys a ticket to the conference, including the speakers, volunteers and organizers.
PySangamam is dedicated to providing a harassment-free conference experience for everyone, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion.
