If you are a new subscriber, please take the time to introduce yourself briefly in your first post.
My name is Fernando Martins, known as Lalo. I'm currently 27 and I live in Brazil. I've been a Python advocate since Bruce Perens introduced me to it in, what, '96.
I've been working professionally with Zope - ranging from site building to training, from infrastructure hacking to consulting - since mid-99, when I selected it from a range of options due to the fact that it was in Python.
In the course of zope training and consulting, I take every opportunity to give python courses and talks.
I never subscribed to python-dev before because I was very involved in the Zope community and preferred to keep my mind out of lower-level stuff, but now I find there are lots of interesting things going on and I'd prefer to be a part of it. ;-)
(Also, Zope is very cool but the web marketing can get tiresome - if I can find a way, I'm planning to retire from it at least in part and spend more time doing plain Python.)
