Welcome to the home of intopython.com by Prashanth Raghu, a python fan and an open source enthusiast, I am the second one in from left. My interest in python began back in 2009 when I was studying at PES University, Bangalore. I was selected to be a part of a three member team to HEIG-VD, University of Applied Sciences, Switzerland to develop a hybrid cloud application. It was developed in python with the web front end designed in PHP. I worked at Citrix Systems R&D India, Bangalore between 2011-2013 as a software developer. I was a Google Summer of Code scholar for the year 2014 interning for OpenStack foundation ( My work: https://github.com/openstack/zaqar/tree/master/zaqar/storage/redis ). I studied at National University of Singapore and did my Masters in Wireless Computation with a research paper between 2013-2014. I was struck by a rare disease called Steven Johnson Syndrome in 2015 due to this my startup failed. At this crucial time I decided to do something of my interest  and opened up the source code of python 2.7. I was amazed at the simplicity yet profoundness of the architecture and decided to share my views with the world. And the result of my efforts for a month has resulted into this blog.

This blog is useful for people interested in contributing to python or interested in how python works or in the design of a programming language.
