Kojo Idrissa

I'm Kojo Idrissa and I joined RevSys on 2020-01-06. I also enjoy a good international standard. I'm a software engineer with an accounting degree and an MBA. You may have seen me at a Django or Python event or conference, as I've been speaking at those since 2013. In the past, I have worked primarily as an accountant. However, I've also been a university instructor in the United States and China.

I'm also a DjangoCon US organizer(since 2016), former DEFNA board member and current DEFNA North American Ambassador. In THAT last role, I've spoken at a lot of conferences. If you've seen me at an event with "Py" or "Python" in the name since 2017, that's a big part of the reason.

More bio updates forthcoming...
