About Me

Hello! My name's Mark Smith, although I'm known as Judy2k nearly everywhere online, except LinkedIn, where I'm "bedmondmark" for some reason.

I speak and write about Python, Rust, and MongoDB.

I'm a Senior Developer Advocate for MongoDB, which means I give talks and write blog posts on the MongoDB Developer Blog and here.

I've been interviewed on the Django Chat podcast, the MongoDB Podcast , and Test & Code, but I can't listen to them because I can't bear to hear the sound of my own voice. 🙈

I'm based in Edinburgh, Scotland, with my wife, daughter & dogs.
