I left early for the venue as haseeb had the first talk of the day and I was volunteering for the Python track.
The day started off with a talk by Stephanie Taylor on Introduction to GSoC, and GCI. She talked about the programs Google Summer of Code and Google Code In. She shared some statistics from the past years. The students of GCI last year completed more than 4k tasks, among them 1k+ was done by the students under FOSSASIA organization.
After the talk, I moved to Pauling Hall to host the Python Track. The track started of with a keynote talk by Kushal. The first talk of the day was by Ivan Zimine on Test driven development with pytest.

The next talk was by me. I was talking about the Fedora Infrastructure, how the projects within the Fedora Infrastructure communicate and how one can start contributing. During the Q/A session, people enquired if someone from Singapore contributes to the Fedora Infrastructure projects and How we decide upon which projects to work on and How do we prioritize?
