PyCon APAC 2023 Keynote Speakers

Hi, I am Takanori Suzuki, a member of the PyCon APAC 2023 staff.

We are pleased to announce the two keynote speakers for PyCon APAC 2023 (https://2023-apac.pycon.jp/). Both keynotes will be presented in English.

Lorena Mesa, Hajime Kita

 I will introduce the profiles of the two keynote speakers.

Lorena Mesa

Political scientist turned coder, Lorena Mesa is a GitHub data engineer, past Director & Chair of the Python Software Foundation, JOSS editor, and PyLadies Chicago co-organizer.

Lorena's time at Obama for America and her subsequent graduate research required her to learn how to transform messy, incomplete data into intelligible analysis on topics like predicting Latinx voter behavior.

It's this unique background in research and applied mathematics that drove Lorena to pursue a career in engineering and data science.

One part activist, one part Star Wars fanatic, and another part Trekkie, Lorena abides by the motto to "live long and prosper".
