This week we welcome Mariatta Wijaya (@mariatta) as our PyDev of the Week! Mariatta is the co-chair of the PyCascades conference, a regional Python conference taking place in Vancouver, BC. She is also a core developer of the Python programming language. She does automation and web development for a movie company, so she also shows up in the Internet Movie Database (IMDB). You can check out what open source projects she is active in over on Github. Let’s take a few moments to get to know her better!
