Story

I was recently selected as one of the speakers for one of the biggest Python conferences in the world, called PyCon, which will be held in Thailand this year. There was a huge pool of people who applied for the same and my talk was shortlisted and I was invited as a speaker to speak at the conference. However, being a student and from a middle class background does not allow me to pay the airfare and the accommodation charges that I will incur in this journey.

I have always been a passionate student and a passionate programmer. You can check my LinkedIn profile to verify that(https://www.linkedin.com/in/rahul-bhatia-67ba08121/)

If you are aware with GitHub, you can check that I have been an active open source contributor too(https://github.com/rbhatia46). Please help with whatever you can as speaking at a conference this big had always been a dream for me and this is a really golden opportunity for me to do it. I am really struggling with the finances and that really upsets me.

Below is the breakdown of the cost that I will incur:
Round-trip Flight Tickets(from Delhi) : Rs. 17000
Visa on-arrival charge : Rs. 2500(after conversion)
Accommodation in a youth hostel : Rs. 3000(Rs. 1500/night for 2 nights)
Conference Ticket = Rs. 1500

Please check my name in the speakers list on the PyCon website to verify the same - https://th.pycon.org/en/speakers/
