[1] Guido van Rossum (Google) is the inventor of Python and has managed
its growth and development for more than a decade. Guido was
awarded the Free Software Foundation Award in 2002 and Dr.Dobb's
1999 Excellence in Programming Award. Guido works at Google and
spends half of his time on Python.

[2] Jim Hugunin (Microsoft) is the creator of numerous innovations that
take Python into new application domains. Jim's most recent project,
IronPython integrates Python into Microsoft's .NET runtime. Jim's
previous project, Jython is Python for the Java runtime and was the
second production-quality implementation of Python. Before that,
Jim's Numeric Python adapted Python to the needs of number crunching
applications. Jim works at Microsoft adapting the .NET runtime to
the needs of dynamic languages like Python.

[3] Ian Cavén is the primary developer of the Lowry Digital Images
motion picture restoration system. This Python and Zope-based system
has been used to restore over 150 motion pictures. Highlights
include Citizen Kane, Sunset Boulevard and both the Indiana Jones
and Star Wars trilogies. While Ian was Chief Scientist at Lowry
Digital, his rack of computers grew from a few Macintoshes on his
desktop to over six hundred Macintosh and Linux servers - at
one point earning Lowry the title as the second biggest installation
of parallel processing Maintoshes in the world. In 2005, Lowry
Digital Images was acquired by DTS (the famous movie audio company)
and renamed DTS Digital Images. The motion picture restoration
system has been discussed in publications as diverse as IEEE
Spectrum, USA Today, the BBC NEWS, the New York Times and Apple.com.
Ian has been a Python enthusiast since 1999.

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers. The idea...
