Hi everyone! I’m a Sr Software Eng @ Lumos, a US startup from SF. I’m based in Buenos Aires, Argentina, but I’m originally from Rio, Brazil. Got interested in Pants cause we have a monorepo at work and I’m on the devops team and we wanna be able to deploy the services separate and manage these dependencies, tests, changed files better. Look at Bazel and other tools too but I had a strong preference for Pants (python ecosystem, you know). Met some Pants contributors at the PyCon US sprints, opened a little docs PR and I’m interested in not only using but contributing to Pants as I love open source 😊
