Siddharta Govindaraj first encountered Python in 2002, and it has remained his favorite programming language ever since. He was an early participant in BangPypers, India's first Python community, and a speaker at InPycon. He is the founder of Silver Stripe Software, an Indian product start-up that develops products based on Python. A vocal proponent of the language, Siddharta extols the virtues of Python to anyone who will listen—and also to those who won't. His blog is at http://www.siddharta.me.
