About Al Sweigart

print('Hello, patron!')

I'm Al Sweigart. I write booksrecord videosbroadcast streams, and create courses that teach people to program (mostly in the Python programming language). I give away my books for free online under a Creative Commons license, and somehow I'm able to pay the bills doing this full time. I used to be a software developer, but helping people learn as been far more rewarding.

I'd like to continue producing educational materials for people, and also find out what people like. More books? Write blog posts? Videos? Udemy courses? Should I continue to develop my open source projects that you use? I'm still new to this, so I haven't worked out reward tiers yet. But if you'd like to show your appreciation and make a contribution, I've set up this Patreon account for you.

Old school game programming time! When I reach $100, I'll start producing a monthly video on creating text-based games such as the ones featured in my book Invent Your Own Computer Games with Python. I'll post these to my YouTube channel, and patrons can get an early sneak peek.
