About Mickey Petersen
Hello! I'm Mickey, and I'm a professional Python developer. I started programming in the mid 1990s, and I've been programming in Python since 2003.
By day, I run this site, and when I'm not doing that, I build bespoke software to help businesses solve their problems.
I've built a wide range of software, including: a risk modelling platform for actuaries to do their terabyte-RAM-sized Monte Carlo simulations; large-scale data engineering, web scraping, and big data systems for a number of companies, ranging from finance to advertising; software for the broadcast TV industry; many web applications and backend services; and much, much more. I relish building high-quality software that solves real-world problems, and that is why I founded this site: to enlighten and inform people who want to grow their Python skills, particularly those of you who started learning Python because it makes a real difference in your lives.
I am also a big fan of Emacs, and I am the author of Mastering Emacs.
