I have been a long time user of Python (20+ years), and am deeply inspired and motivated to give back to the community. I work as a lead developer, and also spend whatever time I can in open source.
Off the top of my head, here are some additional qualities that I think will help my candidacy.
- Core maintainer of the organization behind the Sanic framework
- Licensed attorney in Massachusetts
- Member of local building committee
- 5,000+ points on Stackoverflow (mainly from answering Python questions)
