I'm Seth Michael Larson

I'm a software engineer in the medical device industry and maintainer of many Open Source projects in the Python ecosystem.

I write a blog called "Python ♥ HTTP" which contains my thoughts and findings related to Python, Open Source, HTTP, TLS, URLs, and more.

I maintain many Open Source projects, most notably I'm the lead maintainer for urllib3 which receives the most downloads per day of any package on PyPI. Almost all the projects I contribute to are related to HTTP or URLs. Here's a list of projects I maintain:

I was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota and graduated from the University of Minnesota TC with a BS in Computer Science. Besides programming I enjoy living lake life, gardening, following Minnesota sports, and playing games of all kinds.
