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, (and in some cases links to their wiki pages), 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).
Up-to-date list in the order of the first contribution is given in the AUTHORS file.
You can find a brief history of SymPy in the README.
