"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."
