Ernest W. Durbin III joins the PSF team

I am happy to announce that on June 1, 2018, Ernest W. Durbin III joined the Python Software Foundation team as the Director of Infrastructure.

Ernest is a long time volunteer contributor to the PSF's Infrastructure Work Group,  PyPI, and most recently PyCon US. Through his past experiences, Ernest has gained the insight needed to best guide the PSF forward.

Ernest's responsibilities in the role will include:

  • evaluating and strengthening internal systems 
  • supporting and improving community infrastructure  
  • outreach and mentorship for our volunteers that contribute to the PSF's infrastructure
  • developing programs that benefit the Python community world wide

Ernest is very excited to take our infrastructure to the next level and through that better support our community. The PSF Staff and Directors are thrilled to have Ernest on board.

Prior to this, the role was held by Mark Mangoba as a part-time position. We thank Mark for his dedication to the PSF for the last two years as our IT Manager. We wish him the best in his future endeavors.
