Brandon Rhodes

Brandon's real joy is sharing what he learns with other people, whether about programming, or about the world in which we live—which is probably why his major open-source contribution to Python has always been the PyEphem astronomy library, which he first released in 1998 and continues to maintain. He started his Python web programming career amongst Plone people, which taught him the value of strong community, but he today advocates for simplest-possible Python code that indulges in OO design patterns only when they make beautiful sense.
