This week we welcome Dave Forgac as our PyDev of the Week! Dave is an organizer of PyOhio, ClePy, and the Cleveland API Meetup. He also gave a presentation about sharing your code at PyCon 2017 that you can watch below:
Can you tell us a little about yourself (hobbies, education, etc):
I work as a Sr. Software Engineer at American Greetings in the greater Cleveland, OH area. There I focus mainly on API design and development, application deployment, and internal developer experience.
I grew up in Cleveland and took a few semesters of college classes before losing a scholarship and taking some time off. I moved to Wilmington, DE in ‘03 and eventually went back to school and finished a degree in Information Systems eight years later than planned (it’s never too late!) I moved back to the Cleveland area with my wife in 2011. We now have a 3.5 year old and a newborn keeping us busy.
I enjoy playing with my kids, walking around town with my family, cooking, brewing, hiking, and tabletop gaming. I’ve really been enjoying 5th edition D&D lately. I also have a bunch of “toy” programming projects that I work on when I find time.
Lately I’ve spent a lot more of my own time doing community organizing than I have coding. I help organize a couple local meetups and and PyOhio. I’m the PyOhio 2017 Program Chair and just finalized the schedule. You should check out PyOhio some time! Continue reading PyDev of the Week: Dave Forgac
