Speakers on the way


Keynote Speaker

Michael Droettboom

Michael Droettboom is a Staff Data Engineer at Mozilla. There, he is working with a team that collects data on a massive scale that, unlike most of the big tech companies, respects user agency, privacy and transparency. Prior to that, he has a history of applying machine learning and data science to such diverse as fields as neuroscience, astronomy, medieval manuscripts and 19th century American sheet music. He contributes to many open source projects, was the lead developer of matplotlib, and the original author of airspeed velocity and Pyodide.

Invited Speaker

Asokan Pichai

Asokan Pichai heads Learning and Development and teaches Problem Solving Techniques and Program Design. He has more than twenty-five years of experience in hands-on software development, training and senior level management. He has held leadership positions such as CEO of MinVesta, CTO of Ma Foi, Chief Trainer at Virtusa, and Technical Director of Brilliant's Computer Centre.

Invited Speaker

Dr. Ajith Kumar

Dr. Ajith Kumar works mainly in the area of development of instrumentation for particle accelerators and associated experiments, including radio-frequency accelerating structures, control and data acquisition systems, digital and radio frequency electronics modules. He initiated the Phoenix / expEYES project. ExpEYES is currently the cheapest educational system to teach science.
