I am Prashanth Raghu and my interest in python began back in 2009 when I was studying at PES University, Bangalore. I used python as a part of my internship project in my final year. It was used to develop a hybrid cloud app with the web front end designed in PHP and monitoring and load testing on python. I was a Google Summer of Code scholar for the year 2014. ( My work: https://github.com/openstack/zaqar/tree/master/zaqar/storage/redis ).
I studied at National University of Singapore and did my Masters in Wireless Computation with a research paper between 2013-2014. I was struck by a rare disease called Steven Johnson Syndrome in 2015 due to this my startup failed. At this crucial time I decided to do something of my interest and opened up the source code of python 2.7. I was amazed at the simplicity yet profoundness of the architecture and decided to share my views with the world. And the result of my efforts for a couple of months has resulted into the book “Internals of Cpython 2.7” and “Internals of Cpython3.6” available as a free download under CC 4.0 license.
