Hi folks -

Just to circle back, we have officially contracted with Łukasz Langa to be the first CPython Developer-in-Residence!

PSF announcement: https://pyfound.blogspot.com/2021/07/ukasz-langa-is-inaugural-cpython.html

We look forward to seeing all the impact that Łukasz and this role will have!

Likewise - this is excellent news!

For those interested, Łukasz has a detailed post (linked from the PSF one) that goes into his understanding of an plans for the role: https://lukasz.langa.pl/a072a74b-19d7-41ff-a294-e6b1319fdb6e/

(Super short version: the focus of the paid Developer-in-Residence time is to facilitate activities that aren't already receiving dedicated core developer time through other means; Łukasz has already been seeking advice from the current Django Fellow on applying the lessons they've already learned to the CPython experience)

Cheers,
Nick.
