[python-uk] Using your Python career to make the world a better place (for real!)

I've worked with Steve over the course of several years. For instance,
he designed the snakes used extensively by PyCon UK but which were
originally for the education track and creation of educational resources
(and they're released as a free-to-use community resource too). We've
also worked on several other web based Python-y projects.

You really *do* want to look into working with him if he has an
opportunity for you to do so.

NOTE: Steve didn't ask me to write this email... in fact, he's probably
as surprised as you are by this email. Let that be a signal of the high
regard I have for him and his colleagues. I can't recommend Steve and
Dev Society highly enough.
