Yuvi Panda

DevOps Architect, Data Science Education Program

Yuvi is a DevOps Architect with Berkeley's Data Science Education Program, where he works on making it easy for people who don’t traditionally consider themselves "programmers" to do things with code. He builds tools (e.g., Quarry, PAWS, etc.) to sidestep the list of historical accidents that constitute the "command line tax" that people have to pay before doing productive things with computing. He also contributes to the Jupyter project, primarily around making it easier to deploy.
