Allison Randal

It all started at the age of 5 when Allison's father handed her a soldering iron and a printed circuit board. Her first geek career was as a research linguist in eastern Africa. But eventually her love of coding seduced her away from natural languages to artificial ones. A C and dynamic language (Perl/Python/Ruby/etc) programmer by trade, Allison is the architect of Parrot, chairman of the Parrot Foundation, on the board of directors of the Python Software Foundation and The Perl Foundation, and founder and president of Onyx Neon Press. She also works for O'Reilly Media, planning the program for their Open Source Convention (OSCON). She currently lives in Bristol, UK.
