I’m Andrew Brookins. I write about Python programming, databases, and any technology I’m excited about. Scroll down for the juicy details.
I wrote The Temple of Django Database Performance to help Django developers level up their database performance skills. If you’re a Django developer, you should totally buy it!
The working title for my next book is Planet of the Redis Lords. Check out the example code for the book for a preview!
I’ve worked for over ten years as a software developer. A couple of years ago, I charted ten years of learning investments related to my career.
I’m mildly obsessed with iPads, iOS, and how people get serious work done with mobile technology.
Lately I’ve also been writing and producing technical videos using an iPad and iPhone.
In my free time I kick it with my family (photo below). Our first daughter was born in 2012, and our second was born in 2019. They’re both absolutely bonkers, and I love them.
I’ve written a few public letters to my first daughter, like Dear Alma: How to Quit Drinking.
