Hello! I'm one of the maintainers and also wanted to introduce myself (they/them pronouns). I first contributed to Pants 4 years ago as a summer intern, leading its Python 3 migration. I fell in love with open source and got to keep working on Pants at Twitter and now Toolchain 😄 In between graduating, I was a middle school computer science teacher for a few months teaching intro Python. And I was also a volunteer crisis counselor for 2 years for LGBTQ youth 🏳️‍🌈 So I particularly enjoy teaching liking writing docs, and the human side of software engineering
