Francesco Pierfederici is a software engineer who loves Python. He has been working in the fields of astronomy, biology, and numerical weather forecasting for the last 20 years.
He has built large distributed systems that make use of tens of thousands of cores at a time and run on some of the fastest supercomputers in the world. He has also written a lot of applications of dubious usefulness but that are great fun. Mostly, he just likes to build things.
