I’m a software engineer on Venmo’s Scaling team in New York City.
I’m also a Hacker School alum, where I compiled a Harry Potter-themed Python interpreter and converted a picture of my cat to sound.
Previously I studied pure math and did some data analysis and machine learning in Austin, TX.

You might think the details of how your database operates internally is arcane knowledge for ops witches, but no! Understanding how it performs writes, reads, and stores data can help you develop better data models that can more effectively support your query patterns and dramatically improve the performance of your application.

In Python, overwriting builtin functions is fairly easy. You can even do it in the interpreter! But can you overwrite a statement, like import, just as easily? Let's go on an adventure, discovering how the import statement works, and how Python statements are defined in the CPython source code. We'll face some consequences of bootstrapping, and, to get our custom Harry Potter-themed Grammar to work, we'll have to compile a Python to compile a Python.
