Biography

Michael Schurter is a Python developer at Urban Airship in Portland. He spends his days hacking Django, databases of both the relational and non-relational kind, and a bunch of other fun technologies while trying to get outside and away from technology as often as possible.

He’s an active member in the Portland Python User Group and started the Update Portland meetup as a technology-agnostic forum for people to share their experiences with database, queues, and other data plumbing.
