Mark Hammond is an independent Microsoft Windows consultant working out of Melbourne, Australia. He studied computer science at the South Australian Institute of Technology (now the University of South Australia), and then worked with several large financial institutions in Australia. He started his consulting operation in 1995.
Mark has produced many of the Windows extensions for Python, including PythonWin, Active Scripting, and Active
Debugging support, and coauthored the COM framework and extensions. He is also a leading authority on Active Scripting
and related technologies and has spoken on this subject at Microsoftıs three most recent Professional Developers conferences.
Apart from being a father to his teenage daughter, having an interest in live music, and providing way-too-many free Python
extensions, Mark has no life!
