I enjoy coding in
Python and do so whenever I can. Recently, I've also done a couple of small projects using
Django. I hope to do more. In the IRLs, I'm working to convert my employer's internal applications from
VB6 (boo) to
Python (yay) or to
Java (when I'm building on previous conversion efforts). These are strictly desktop applications for now - ultimately, I would like to replace all the disparate internal desktop business apps with a modular collection of web apps with access to a unified database. Coming from a previous employer with 90,000+ people, I consider myself very lucky to work in an environment where as a programmer this is my choice to make.
In my spare time, I'm also a part-time computer science grad student. My educational background is in finance so I'm working through the transition from lifelong programming hobbyist to computer scientist as best I can. There are hiccups along the way.
