Where does Python core developer activity get directed to? #Python
Who contributes where?
We have a self-reported Experts Index in the Python Developer’s Guide. Many libraries and fields don’t have anyone listed though, so let’s try to find who is contributing where. Especially given the previous file-based activity, it’s interesting to see who works on what. However, the files table contains 18,184 distinct filenames. That’s too much to form decent groups for analytics.
So instead, I wrote a script to identify the top 5 contributors per file. There is a lot of deduplication there and some pruning of irrelevant results but sadly the end result is still 636 categories. Well, it’s a huge project, maybe that should be expected if we want to be detailed. I’m sure we could sensibly bring it down still but I erred on the side of providing more information rather than too little.

Adafruit publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world. Our standards page is intended as a guide to best practices that Adafruit uses, as well as an outline of the ethical standards Adafruit aspires to. While Adafruit is not an independent journalistic institution, Adafruit strives to be a fair, informative, and positive voice within the community – check it out here: adafruit.com/editorialstandards
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
