sed·i·men·tal /ˌsedəˈmen(t)əl/ adjective - of or relating to gradual accumulation of sentiments.
I'm Mahmoud Hashemi. I write software and words in California.
This is my personal site, where I enjoy combining software and words into accessible-yet-thorough engineering guides. In 2016, this habit has spilled over into O'Reilly's Enterprise Software with Python.
Professionally, I've worked as a software architect and engineer at PayPal and Shopkick. For a number of years I've led teams to build Python frameworks, with emphasis on robustness, performance, and maintainability. If you're interested in my Python background, check out this brief history.
If I have a theme song, it's SimCity 2000 music. Catch me whistling it when I think no one's around.
You can email me at email@example.com, but most people just follow me on Twitter.
