What it's like to be on the Python Steering Council

The Stack Overflow Podcast

Ben and senior software engineer Kyle Mitofsky talk with Pablo Galindo Salgado, a Python core developer and Python Steering Council member, about how he infiltrated software development from the world of physics, the journey from fixing typos to updating core, and the time he broke GitHub (an important developer milestone!). This is part one of their two-part conversation.

Pablo is a Python core developer, Steering Council member, and release manager of Python 3.10 and 3.11. He splits this work 50/50 with his day job as a senior software engineer at Bloomberg.

An astrophysicist by training, he did his PhD on rotating black holes.

Whether you’re a new contributor or a seasoned veteran, the Python Developer’s Guide is a comprehensive guide to contributing to Python.

Pablo is on LinkedIn, Twitter, and GitHub.

Kyle is also on Linked, Twitter, and GitHub.
