"Laszlo: I'm Laszlo Pandy, one of the two lead
developers of Jokosher. I am an undergraduate student who uses
Ubuntu and loves to develop with Python. School is easy enough that
I have spare time between classes, which I started to fill with
open source a couple of years ago.
"I knew Java from school and quickly taught myself Python, but
when I was new to Linux it was still hard finding an open source
project to contribute to, which is why I make an effort to include
anyone I can in the Jokosher project.
"One day I was listening to Jono Bacon announce on LugRadio that
someone had started his idea for JonoEdit, and he mentioned that
everyone should get involved right now before the code was too
complicated to pick up easily. So I did exactly that. I was given
SVN access the next day. Since then people have come and gone, and
myself the other lead developers gradually inherited more
responsibility for the project."
