Guido van Rossum

Guido is the author of the popular Python programming language. The Python community refers to him as the BDFL (Benevolent Dictator For Life), a title straight from a Monty Python skit.

He moved from the Netherlands to the USA in 1995, where he met his wife. Until July 2003 they lived in the northern Virginia suburbs of Washington, DC with their son Orlijn, who was born in 2001. Since 2005, he has been employed full-time at Google where he splits his time between working on Python and doing projects.
