My name is JD and I too am looking for a project. Microsoft Excel is my favorite programming language… just kidding.
You might have seen me be incredibly late to Kathryn’s CartoDB workshop (which seemed pretty good). I did very little networking there with others as I was both embarrassed and astute for entirely missing the ball with my first meeting. However, I still remained to be determined somehow.
My main bundle of skills surrounds Linux, servers, networking, and implementation stuff; I would consider myself some sort of systems administrator. However, I am becoming increasingly familiar with Python, Ruby (and also Rails), JS, and MySQL as I sharpen up my dev skills. The deal is that I have my head wrapped around most basic programming concepts, but I haven’t spend enough time putting it under my fingers to call myself someone that knows his way around. While I do not consider myself the most relevant person in this group, let me know if you need an extra set of hands.
