I have several different skills and hobbies, most of which revolve around computer science and/or music. I am just as happy behind a computer as I am behind a synthesizer.
I enjoy learning about TOC topics and exploring potential connections between theoretical computer science and other disciplines. My particular area of interest is Turing machines and their use in music analysis.
I've worked on a wide variety of coding projects for work, school, and as hobbies. I've written software applications for data analysis, data visualization, research projects, IT scripting, and even a few unusual things like a game for the Game Boy Advance.
I have a super deep passion for music. I write and play music for fun, and progressive rock is usually what's playing through my speakers.
I've had experience deploying apps to AWS, Google Cloud, and Heroku. IAAS and PAAS providers make handling cloud resources relatively straight forward.
I occasionally post things here about what I am currently working on in my spare time and topics I find interesting. Posts range from programming and application tutorials to observations about technology and music.
This is a short article in which I detail the current state of DevOps technology in 2016. The article also covers whether or not DevOps is useful for all businesses.View post.
In this tutorial, we are going to create a realistic looking Earth in Blender 2.77a. The result looks very similar to the famous "Blue Marble" composite image. View post.
In Part 3 of this tutorial series, we looked at how to write a basic Flask app, we wrote modular html code by utilizing jinja templates, and we added some basic style with bootstrap and font-awesome. In this part, we are going to learn how to create a PostgreSQL database that will interface with our server and html code. View post.
In Part 2 of this tutorial series, we learned how to use virtual Python environments in order to keep our app’s dependencies isolated from other projects. In this tutorial, we are going to learn about the Flask, which is the Python micro-framework that is going to power the back-end of our app. View post.
We are going to be building a web app that lets users manage a list of their pets. In reality, that idea is pretty dumb, but it works well for the purposes of this tutorial. View post.
