Speaker Info:

Hi, my name is Shivani and I'm a Python Enthusiast. I graduated from Institute of Applied Medicine and Research in July 2015. I’ve pursued a research internship at Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore in 2019. During my internship, I self-taught myself parallel programming to use the Cray XC40 supercomputer at IISc. I teach part time and I also work at a company called BBC. I've given my profile links below. Feel free to connect with me and discuss anything related to Python. I look forward to imparting this knowledge to you all.
