My name is Mariatta. My pronoun is she/her/hers. I live in Vancouver
The open source projects that I'm currently focusing on are:
- CPython, specifically the core-workflow, GitHub bots, Devguide and general documentation
- Python Core Sprint
I'm also a public speaker and I co-organize Vancouver PyLadies group.
For my contributions to Python, I've received the Community Service Award from Python Software Foundation. I've also been nominated twice for Google Open Source Peer Bonus program. I'm a PSF Fellow member since 2020. In honor of Ada Lovelace Day in 2020, my story was shared on GitHub ReadME project.
