Hi! I'm a second-year master's student at the UC Berkeley School of Information. I've built a variety of Python and JavaScript-based web applications for classes and I volunteer code, design, and other contributions for Django-based open source project OpenHatch. I've taught Python, Django, and web programming generally to women and their friends in San Francisco, Berkeley, and Boston, and wrote a research paper on FOSS diversity and community-building (a summarized version of which appeared in the August 2011 issue of Full Circle Magazine).
