About me

Hi I’m Will, 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 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’d like to reach me, my email address is [email protected]. Please be aware that I receive a lot of emails so if your query is not specific to one of my books or tutorials, I can’t guarantee a response. If you have general questions on Django I recommend the Official Django Forum.
