About the Author
Albert Sweigart (but you can call him Al), is a software developer in San Francisco, California who enjoys haunting coffee shops and making useful software. Hacking Secret Ciphers with Python is his third book.
He is originally from Houston, Texas. He laughs out loud when watching park squirrels, which makes people think he’s a simpleton. He almost ended up working at the NSA after college, but then again we all do dumb things when we are young.
