Doug Hellmann is currently employed by HP to work on OpenStack. He has been programming in Python since version 1.4, and has worked on a variety of Unix and non-Unix platforms for projects in fields such as mapping, medical news publishing, banking, and data center automation. Doug is a member of the Python Software Foundation, and served as its Communications Director from 2010-2012. After a year as a regular columnist for Python Magazine, he served as Editor-in-Chief from 2008-2009. Between 2007 and 2011, Doug published the popular "Python Module of the Week" series on his blog, and that material served as the basis for his book "The Python Standard Library By Example". He lives in Athens, Georgia.

Doug started contributing to OpenStack in 2012, just before the Folsom summit. He is a core reviewer and one of the founding members of the Ceilometer project, and a core reviewer for the requirements and unified command line interface projects. He is on the stable release maintenance team, part of the team working on the Python 3 transition, and has contributed to several of the infrastructure projects. He has served as the PTL for the Oslo project for the Icehouse and Juno releases.
