We are very honored to announce Khairil Yusof as our keynote for PyCon MY 2018!
Khairil is the Programme Consultant of Sinar Project with broad experience in managing, developing and implementing innovative development programmes for government, international organizations and civil society, that directly or indirectly involve digital technologies with limited resources in politically or technically constrained environments.
He has extensive cross-practice and cross-sector experience implementing programmes for UN agencies, governments and civil society in Asia-Pacific including digital rights, human rights, labour rights and environment. Also strong technical background in software development and systems administration with open source software, specifically FreeBSD and Linux operating systems, Python language and Plone CMS.
Current area of interest is in applying innovative methods of open data and standards, for transparency and anti-corruption.
Even though he is not as skilled in languages as his fellow team mates, but he primarily speaks Python, and a smattering of Go. In what little (if any) personal time left after spending time with his kids, he plays basketball, dabbles in gardening, playing keyboard and following what’s happening in the different fields of design.
PyCon MY is happening from 25 August to 26 August 2018 at University of Malaya, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
