Manuel Kaufmann met Python, while performing his university studies, at the PyDay Santa Fe (Argentina) event in 2006 and since that day his life changed forever, literally. He fell in love with its syntax and forgot pointers and double-linked list of C to these days. Since then he has become an active member of Python Argentina (travels South America by car to spread Python) . In these years, he has participated in the translation of the official book of Django and Django Girls Tutorial, among others. He has also worked on projects like One Laptop Per Child and in February 2016 was named "Python Ambassador" by the Python Software Foundation for his work with Argentina in Python. Currently he is working at Read the Docs as a software developer.
