Paul Cutler is a married father of three, living in the suburbs of Minneapolis, Minnesota. When he's not attending his kids sports activities or introducing them to classic 80s movies, you can find him listening to records from his vinyl collection, tinkering with Python or CircuitPython, playing with his dog, or watching a movie.
Paul believes strongly in the power of open source, both software and hardware. Paul has contributed to a number of open source projects, most notably in the past with GNOME. He contributed to GNOME's marketing and system administration teams; was the managing editor of GNOME Journal, a quarterly magazine about GNOME; wrote documentation for a number of applications including Banshee, Tomboy, and Recipes; served as a mentor for Outreachy, for those under represented in tech; and served one term on the GNOME Board of Directors as President and Chairman. Paul continues to contribute by writing documentation for a handful of open source projects. He is also a member of the Electronic Frontier Foundation and the Python Software Foundation.

Thank you to everyone who has contributed anything to CircuitPython, MicroPython, and / or Python. Thank you to Talk Python to Me, where I have learned almost all of the Python I know, starting from their first Kickstarter through the Full Web Apps with FastAPI course to build this site. The show also inspired me to start this podcast, and thank you to the host, Michael Kennedy, for answering all my questions when starting out. Thank you to Brian Okken, host of the Test and Code podcast, whose podcast interview prep I have shamelessly stole (with his permission, of course).
The CircuitPython community wouldn't be who it is without the Adafruit Discord. Thanks to everyone who has answered one of my many questions.
Lastly, thank you for listening and taking a chance on the show.
