Latest and Greatest

What's New?

Summer is almost here and I'm finally getting somewhere with my projects!

The LexMesh Project is making progress: we have hardware on the way and are scouting locations for additional nodes. Given the recent issues with Internet freedoms, I wanted to take a shot at starting a local mesh network for community organizing. We're currently using the Bluegrass Developers Guild Slack for working through the initial stages of the project. Feel free to join the conversation.

The tech and developer conference is currently scheduled for the 19th of September, 2019, at the Lexington Downtown Library. I'll post more information as I receive it. If you really need to know, you can always join us online in the Bluegrass Developers Guild Slack where I can give you details as they evolve.

I have started to distance myself from the Data for Democracy project due to many reasons, but I still plan to contribute to the code of ethics that initially attracted me and other contributors to this project. I'll post updates here and on the about page once final shifts on this project have been made.

As always, all of my work professionally and academically is kept as open-source as possible. To find my papers, blogs, classes, and other projects, check out my GitHub.

Community Organization

I'm very passionate about helping the people around me (even if I'm not the most social or vocal about it). :) I currently organize the Bluegrass Developers Guild in Kentucky. Please join us on Slack (request access through the Guild website) and attend our monthly Open Code sessions! I also organize and sponsor the LexPy Python Group and the Bluegrass Data Science Group. There are monthly meetups for topics related to data science, Python, R, blockchains, GIS, and much more! Please join us via the links above where I will be posting the latest events. We're also always looking for speakers. :)
