Tim AnsellSoftware Engineer at Google
Tim 'mithro' Ansell is a long time Googler and open source contributor. He is a vocal enthusiast of the Python programming language, so much so that he started a conference dedicated to the topic called PyCon AU. Tim's long-running efforts have concentrated around making recording and live streaming of conferences cheap and easy to do, and making hardware more like software (in terms of e.g. customizability and development turnaround). He created Tomu, Tim's Open Micro USB - a programmable MCU in your USB port, and it's FPGA sibling, Fomu. Tim is a co-chair of the RISC-V Soft CPU interest group.
