PyCon UK 2022

Eli Holderness

Eli has been a nerd for their entire life, and has now been working in tech for 6 years after being released back into the wild from university.

These days they can be found at Anvil, where they yell about Python and the web and get paid for it. In their spare time they enjoy hanging out with their cat, knitting, and trying to stop their cat from eating their knitting.
