about the authors

Warren Sande is an electronic systems engineer who uses Python as his favorite “do anything” scripting language at work, and also uses it to help teach people about computers and programming. Carter Sande started programming when he was six years old, wrote the first edition of this book with his dad when he was nine, and now works as a professional software engineer. In his spare time, he creates games for retro consoles like the Game Boy Advance and enjoys reading and writing interactive fiction.
