Brandt Bucher

Brandt is a Python core developer currently working at Microsoft on a team tasked with improving the speed of the CPython interpreter.

He has been officially involved in Python development for over two years now, and has improved its performance, stability, and expressiveness in a variety of ways. Most notably, he spent most of the past year helping design and lead the implementation of structural pattern matching, a major new feature arriving in Python 3.10.

When he’s not pushing new commits on GitHub as @brandtbucher, he spends most of his free time at coffee shops sipping dark roast espresso and reading nonfiction.
