James Tauber


I am the founder and CEO of Eldarion, an incubator and web agency focused on taking ideas to launch faster using Pinax and Django.

I currently live just outside of Boston, Massachusetts with my wife, but am originally from Perth, Western Australia.

I have been developing open source software and working with web technologies since 1993 and have been using Python since 1998. For the last six years, I have been working with Django. I am the creator and lead developer of Pinax.

When not working with software startups, websites and open source software, I’m an aspiring filmmaker, composer and music theorist, mathematician and linguist.

I am currently on leave from a PhD in linguistics at the University of Essex where I was researching the inflectional morphology of Ancient Greek.

I am a technologist, an entrepreneur, a scholar and an artist.

I am a journeyman of some.
