Hello everyone,

We are excited to announce Kovid Goyal as our first Keynote speaker for
PyCon India 2024.

About Kovid Goyal
--------------

Kovid Goyal is the creator and ongoing maintainer of dozens of Python projects, with millions of users. Most prominently calibre[1], the e-book management program and kitty[2], the GPU accelerated terminal. Many of his Python projects are focused on speed, for example `html5-parser` which is 30x as fast as the Python alternatives. Or kitty which has best in class performance despite being written partly in Python.

You can also find him on GitHub[3], and visit his Website[4] to read more about his work.
