I am a Python Programmer, father of two beautiful daughters, and am involved heavily in the Python community - currently I am working on PyCon US 2013 as Chair (http://us.pycon.org) - the largest Python developer conference in the world. Additionally, I serve on the Python Software Foundation (http://www.python.org/psf/) board of directors as well as several committees geared towards community education and outreach.
I've also been slowly work on a FAQ about the PSF (http://psf-docs.readthedocs.org/en/latest/_docs/faq.html).
Other projects I am working on:
- Python.org site redesign
- Several groups and projects focused on making the Python community event better:
- I've worked on (but stalled) on a Python 3 advocacy site
Additionally I work with community members and sponsors as much as possible to get them involved more in the community aspects of Python - either helping them draft grant requests for the PSF (http://www.python.org/psf/grants/) or coaching them on where they can further help or contribute. I work with potential sponsors to help guide them where their contributions can do the most help for the PSF, community, PyCon, outreach groups such as PyLadies, etc.
I've been lucky to write the forewards to two books - "Dive into Python 3", by Mark Pilgrim and "The Python Standard Library by Example" by Doug Hellmann. I also got to write a fair amount for the now defunct Python Magazine.
