Ed Leafe is a Python developer. He currently is employed by IBM and is working on the OpenStack project.
He developed the business object class originally for the Visual FoxPro Codebook back in 1996. This was adapted to Python in 2004 as part of the Dabo project, and served as the basis for the tiered design of Dabo. Those of you familiar with the Codebook framework will feel very much at home with Dabo.
