Hello, everyone!
I'm Futatsugi from the PyCon JP 2019 contents team.

I'm excited to announce our day 2 keynote speaker: Makoto Koike!

Makoto is known as a developer of a cucumber grading and sorting machine.
He is using Python across a range of areas including machine learning, hardware, and web application to improve efficiency in farming.
We believe he is a perfect role model for Pythonistas in “new era”.
So we decided to invite him as a keynote speaker to PyCon JP 2019 with the theme “Python New Era”.

There will be some invited speakers on the first day.
This will be announced soon as well.

Looking forward to seeing you all and our keynote speakers in September!

And please submit your talk proposal at https://www.papercall.io/cfps/2160/submissions/new by 6/2.

Here is Mr. Koike's profile.

Now he is focusing on developing a cucumber grading and sorting machine in Python on his own.
