About the Authors

Dr. Christian Mayer -- Founder Finxter.com, Computer Scientist, Blogger, and Freelancer

I just finished working as a doctoral computer science researcher on distributed systems in Germany. As a researcher, I have taught many students in computer science, graph theory, and distributed systems. 

My passions are writing, reading, and coding. But my #1 passion is to serve aspiring coders through Finxter and help them to boost their skills. 

I practice what I preach teaching only tricks I learned from building my own freelance developer business online.

Lukas Rieger -- Finxter COO & Instagram Influencer (60k subs), DevOp Engineer, Computer Scientist

After my apprenticeship as a practical coder, I studied software engineering at University of Stuttgart where I worked together with Christian in distributed graph processing research. For the last years, I have been working as a developer and Cloud Operations Engineer.

I discovered my passion for teaching computer science as a coding tutor. With this book, I want to share with you my love for Python -- because of its clarity, flexibility, and vast range of libraries!
