The Python Software Foundation welcomes a new Executive Director: Deb Nicholson #Python @ThePSF
The Python Software Foundation (PSF), the non-profit home of the Python programming language community, welcomes Deb Nicholson as its new Executive Director. With 15 years of open source experience and over 25 years of non-profit experience, Deb is joining the organization just in time for the first in-person PyCon US since 2019. Community members and supporters will have a chance to meet her at this year’s conference, later this month in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Lorena Mesa, PSF Chairperson comments, “After many years of successful growth under former PSF Executive Director Ewa Jodlowska’s leadership, the PSF has matured into a stable organization and is uniquely positioned to expand upon on our successes, while continuing to lead the way in diversity and inclusivity for Pythonistas and the broader community of technology users and creators alike.”
