Why attend PyBay2022 Food Truck Edition

It's outdoors and super fun

Miss geeking out with friends in person over good food and drinks? Longing for synchronicities and thought-expanding exchanges with Pythonistas? Past Food Truck Edition attendees say:
"It was the best day of the year for me" ~ Yury Selivanov, Founder of EdgeDB. Core dev on async/await.
"There are so many things to like - the talks, the food trucks, it being outdoors, a smaller conference so you get to talk to people." ~ Michael Kennedy @TalkPython
