This week we welcome Ali Spittel (@ASpittel) as our PyDev of the Week! Ali is a blogger and speaker and enjoys teaching about tech. You can see what code she’s been writing over on Github. Let’s take a few moments to get to know Ali better!
Can you tell us a little about yourself (hobbies, education, etc):
Hey! I’m Ali. I am a software engineer at DEV, an awesome community of programmers that I was a member of for a while before joining. Outside of work, I rock climb and hang out with my puppy, Blair. I’m also really involved in the DC tech community, which is incredible.
I’m mostly self-taught as far as programming goes — I was a government major at Hamilton College, but I took a few computer science classes and fell in love with it. Here we are!
Why did you start using Python?
I actually learned Python as my very first programming language in college. That class was awesome — we built a bunch of games and learned the fundamentals pretty well.
What other programming languages do you know and which is your favorite?
Thanks for doing the interview, Ali!
