I have a BS in Physics and have been using computer programming languages as a professional programmer at Harvard University. The American Institute of Physics has awarded 3 of my software packages as first place winners in one of their software contest. I served as a programing resource to many Harvard professors and staff in many computer languages and operating systems while the Harvard University. I was awarded the technical person of the year award at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics.
I have worked with Linux professionally for over 10 years at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, developing software to control robotic telescopes. I work in the Bash shell. Linux has helped me get the job done from parsing, piping, editing, filtering, and controlling jobs.
I have worked in Python at the Center for Astrophysics as well as developed my own personal interactive food blog with Python and Django. I have also helped a nonprofit with their Django/Python website, and developed video editing software using Python. I find Python is a wonderful language for getting things done.
