Mike Pirnat has been wrangling Pythons at meaningful connections leader American Greetings since 2000. In his time there, he’s written a ton of code, guided major technology improvements, and battled the forces of darkness (you know—IE and Javascript). Lately he’s excited about security, REST APIs, and organizing and emceeing AG’s annual Hack Day. He is the author of “How to Make Mistakes in Python” and co-hosted and produced From Python Import Podcast before its long slumber. You can find him online at mike.pirnat.com.
