Hi Bipal,

+1 what Roy said.

Can't remember if you were there or not, but Euorpython organisers recently

Definitely find a group of people who will be taking action from day one
with you as you can easily burn out and get overwhelmed (trust me, I know
how that feels from running the 1st for PyCon Ireland conferences😉).

Good luck!
