About Author

Philip Herron is an avid software engineer who focuses his passion towards compilers and virtual machine implementations. When he was fi rst accepted to Google Summer of Code 2010, he used inspiration from Paul Biggar's PhD on optimization of dynamic languages to develop a proof of concept GCC frontend to compile Python. This project sparked his deep interest of how Python works. After completing a consecutive year on the same project in 2011, Philip decided to apply for Cython under the Python foundation to gain a deeper appreciation of the standard Python implementation. Through this, he started leveraging the advantages of Python to control the logic in systems or even to add more high-level interfaces such as embedding Twisted web servers for REST calls to a system-level piece of software without writing any C code. Currently Philip is employed by NYSE Euronext in Belfast Northern Ireland, working on multiprocessing systems. But he spends his evenings hacking on GCCPy, Cython, and GCC. In the past, he has worked with WANdisco as an Apache Hadoop developer and as an intern with SAP Research on cloud computing.
