About me

Hi I’m William, a Board Member of the Django Software Foundation and founder of LearnDjango.com. I’m also the author of three books on Django, host of the weekly Django Chat podcast, and run the weekly Django News newsletter.

Previously I worked at numerous early-stage startups, most notably Quizlet, and taught computer science at Williams College.

Outside of programming I’m an avid reader. If you’re curious about the design and hosting of this website, I’ve written a detailed post on the topic.
