I’ve been a busy bee in the two months since my last post.
January was ridiculous. I was only in town for about a week and half. The rest of the month was spent traveling. I looked into the graduate program at UT Austin and went to a mini-conference. As a result, I might be helping a non-profit organization build a new website! I’m waiting to hear back from the heads for the project, but if they agree then I’ll get to flex my Python muscles and build a site with Django! There’ll also be some Bootstrap and Angular work involved. I’m looking forward to it.
I’m also working on a project with my local branch of Code for America. I’m part of a group that is analyzing county jail data to see what insights we can gain about the jail population. My current task is building a MySQL database out of the Excel spreadsheets we were given. The next group meeting will be in a couple weeks, so I’ve got some time to prepare. I’m considering writing a post on the process of transforming the data from the spreadsheets into tables. I’ll see if I have time over the weekend.
And that’s what I’ve been up to! It’s interesting times.
