Hi! I'm David Amos! I'm the Content Technical Lead at Real Python and a co-curator of PyCoder's Weekly.
I have over five years of experience in tech, including:
- Large-scale audio/visual system design
- Business process automation
- Data engineering and data analysis
- Machine learning and artificial intelligence
- Web application development
I have a B.S. in Applied Mathematics with a minor in Computer Science from the University of Houston – Downtown. I spent three years working towards a Ph.D. in Mathematics at Texas A&M University before my life led me away from academia. I'm still a huge math nerd to this day.
I'm fluent in English and Spanish, and I've lived in tres países: the United States, El Salvador, and Guatemala. I love traveling in Central America, eating pupusas, and drinking fresh café bourbon.
In my spare time I enjoy watching Star Trek and anything produced by Bon Appétit.

Writing and communicating in an online learning environment, while making connections with your students, is a very important first step. This is the first episode in a two-part series.
In this episode, Sean and Kelly talk with David Amos, a writer for Real Python about how he makes connections with his Real Python tutorials and we will share tips and techniques for developing quality online writing for learners.
