I work at Knewton, where we're working to revolutionize how kids and adults of all ages learn. Previously, I founded the Kiln distributed source control system. In my free time, I program in Python and in Pharo, an open-source, cross-platform Smalltalk dialect. You can browse most of my code at my GitHub and Bitbucket accounts.

In fairness, it can be really confusing for dumb reasons. E.g., you'll see a db namespace in unmaintained, which would be death...except that the only actual thing in it is the mysql driver. The PostgreSQL, SQLite, and ORM libraries are in basis, power factorcode.org, and are kept fully up-to-date. Likewise, there's lots of Cairo stuff in unmaintained, but Cairo proper is heavily used in the IDE (and, again, in basis).
