Experience

Albert Lukaszewski is a former writer for ThoughtCo who wrote about the Python programming language for over three years. Lukaszewski started programming in the early 1980s on a machine that provided exactly 3583 bytes of memory. Much of his programming since then has related to text processing, database systems, and natural language processing (NLP).

Currently, Lukaszewski oversees large NLP projects and consults on general programming matters. He remains a member of several professional societies including the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).

Education

When Lukaszewski started programming in the 1980s, the various computer courses of today simply did not exist; one either learned to compute on one's own or joined a technical outfit as a trainee and learned on the job. Since that time, Lukaszewski has studied and received various accreditations including certification in C and C++ programming and a Ph.D.
