I guess that it falls to me for the first introduction.
I'm Stewart, and I work at the CCDC, where I lead the Life Sciences software development team. Collectively, we are responsible for bringing you various products, including the CSD Python API.
My background is in protein modelling and cheminformatics, although I've worked for most of the past decade as a scientific software engineer. The CSD Python API excites me because it opens up many of the CSD-based technologies. Until now these were only available in our desktop tools. With the API you can choose how to apply these technologies to solve your own problems rather than being able to apply them only how we thought you wanted.
I can hardly wait to see what amazing things everyone builds, and what scientific challenges they overcome, with our API!
