Louis Elkner-Alfaro

Louis enjoys creating representations of real world facts and patterns in the form of data and computer programs. The programmers closest to him were using Python and Django as their tools-of-choice so he picked them up as well. He enjoys Python's readability.

Louis is grateful that he was born into a network of Free Software activists and that he gets to collaborate with people who believe information and education should be accessible to all.

Louis dreams of developing software that will assist real world efforts that contribute to a happier, healthier world.
