This week we welcome Anthony Tuininga as our PyDev of the Week! Anthony is the creator of the cx_Freeze library among several others in the cx Suite. You can get a feel for what he’s currently working on over on GitHub. Let’s take some time to get to know Anthony better!
Can you tell us a little about yourself (hobbies, education, etc)?:
I grew up in a small town in the central interior of British Columbia, Canada. In spite of it being a small town, my school managed to acquire a personal computer shortly after they were made available. I was fascinated and quickly became the school guru. That experience convinced me that computers and especially programming were in my future. I moved to Edmonton, Alberta, Canada in order to attend university and ended up staying there permanently. Instead of only taking computing science courses I ended up combining them with engineering and received a computer engineering degree. After university, I first worked for a small consulting firm, then for a large consulting firm and am now working for the software company, Oracle, in the database group. Besides working with computers I enjoy reading and both cross-country and downhill skiing.
