As someone who has been fortunate to have participated in the SF meetup space, I am excited to be a part of the crew. While I look forward to making PyBay'19 a success, I am equally excited about interacting with everyone who loves Python. It is often through these conversations that we discover some lesser known aspects of this wonderful language.
