Albert Sweigart (but you can call him Al), is a software developer in San Francisco, California who enjoys bicycling, volunteering, haunting coffee shops, and making useful software. "Making Games with Python & Pygame" is his second book.
His first book, "Invent Your Own Computer Games with Python" can be read online at http://inventwithpython.com.
He is originally from Houston, Texas. He finally put his University of Texas at Austin computer science degree in a frame. He laughs out loud when watching park squirrels, which makes people think he’s a simpleton.
