Most people know me as the creator of pandas, but I also co-created Apache Arrow and Ibis. I am now the CTO of Voltron Data, where we are building Arrow-powered computing systems. I am a Member of the Apache Software Foundation. I blog occasionally on my personal website.
My book Python for Data Analysis is in its 2nd edition and is a great introduction to the Python data stack (IPython, NumPy, pandas, and matplotlib). I'm currently working on the 3rd edition and expect it to be out in 2022.
