<p><img src="{% static "images/team/chris.jpg" %}" alt="Christopher Neugebauer" class="team-headshot circle">Christopher is a Python developer who lives in glorious Petaluma, California, though he's originally from the the city of Hobart in Tasmania, Australia. A serial conference organizer, he has been a core organiser of PyCon Australia for a number of years, was director of linux.conf.au 2017, and a good number of his open source contributions help power the website this conference runs on. He was made a fellow of the Python Software Foundation in 2013 in recognition for his contributions to building the Australian Python community, and currently serves as an at-large Director of the Python Software Foundation.

Five years ago he attended his first PyCon US and hasn't been able to break the habit; after making the jump from audience to stage in 2014 and speaking regularly at events around the world, he was thrilled to join the team when invited by Chris and Josh. Sam currently works at Nuna building healthcare data infrastructure for the U.S. Medicaid and Medicare programs and resides in Oakland with his husband Kameron.

<h3>Maxwell Pearl</h3>
 
<p><img src="{% static "images/team/max.jpg" %}" alt="Maxwell Pearl" class="team-headshot circle">
 
After leaving academia 20 years ago, Max became a freelance developer and open source advocate, primarily in the non-profit space. He was on the steering committee of the Non Profit Open Source Initiative (NOSI), and was a member of the boards of NTEN, the Nonprofit Technology Network, and of Aspiration, an organization that fosters software development in the nonprofit/NGO sector.  Max focuses on back-end data and web systems, and Python is his technology obsession. He lives in the woods in Sonoma County, and occasionally leaves for provisions and community. He is super happy to help foster open source community in his backyard.
