I enjoy using Python due to it's ease of use, brevity without sacrificing readability and it's well thought out design. I've been programming in mostly Python for the last decade. Other languages I dabble in include Erlang and Lisp. I'd love to see Python completely replace PHP as the langiage of choice for most web developers and likewise in-place of Java for backend systems.
I'd enjoy meeting with other like-minded people to both share my experiences and learn about effective software development techniques involving Python. For example - pros / cons of the various available frameworks and micro-frameworks Flask / Bottle / Pyramid.
I'm an avid software developer with 20 experience along with a BS and MS in Computer Science. I work on both front end web development and backend systems using a variety of database systems and involving, parallel processing, workflow and graphics.
