SymPy is a team project and it was developed by a lot of people.

Here is a list of contributors together with what they do, plus links to their wiki pages (if they have one on the page People), where they describe in more details what they do and what they are interested in (some people didn’t want to be mentioned here, so see our repository history for a full list).
