Mark Rees

"Over his 30+ years as a programmer, Mark has programmed in many languages, but has the most fun programming in Python which he has been using since 1997 aka Python 1.4. He is a contributor to a number of Python Open Source projects including Informix database adapters for some Python Web frameworks. His current day job is Chief Technology Officer for Century Software (M) Sdn Bhd, a Malaysian software solutions company that uses Python & Open Source software in many of it's offerings. He was the organizer of the Sydney Python Group for a number of years. Marks thinks of Malaysia as his second home as he has been traveling here for almost as long as he has been programming in Python. He has spoken at a number of Open Source conferences about Python including PyCon Australia, PyCon APAC & PyCon Singapore."
