About me

I’m a full stack web developer based in Boston. I love to share what I know through books, teaching, and at conferences.

I’ve written two books on the Django Web Framework and recently taught computer science at Williams College. Previously I worked at multiple early stage startups, most notably Quizlet where I was employee #3.

Currently I’m working on a third book, Django for Professionals, that I plan to release in April 2019.
