Hi! I’m Erik van Baaren, the owner and author of many of the articles and tutorials on:

  • The Medium publication called “Python Land
  • The website python.land
  • My articles in other publications, like “Better Programming”

I’ve been working as a professional software developer for 25 years and hold a Master of Science degree in computer science. My favorite language of choice: Python!

If you’re not a Medium member yet, please consider signing up to Medium through my profile page. This way, you directly support Python Land and me without additional costs since Medium pays me for referring you. It comes a long way in supporting my writing career!

I started writing professionally in 2019, right here on Medium, and have since done so. I love writing and strive to share knowledge in a clear, concise, and understandable way. However, I’m still working as a full-time software engineer too.

How Medium works

Medium pays writers by counting reading time. If you read someone's article, that person gets a share of your monthly contribution. So you’re supporting all the other independent writers and me through your monthly contribution while getting a ton of information and fresh articles without ads. I think it’s a great model that allows writers to focus on quality instead of marketing.
