About

For 15 years I have worked in weather operations, 4 of those years were space weather monitoring solar activity.

Most of my development projects are around atmospheric science.

early 2021 I began programming with vanilla JavaScript and NodeJS. After about 3-4 months of getting my feet wet with JS I started working with React. Notable JS libraries react-leaflet and d3.

fall 2021 - I used a 90 day GCP free trial to push my application into a K8 cluster. I had a need to read grib2 data so that I serve radar imagery to my application. They aren’t many NodeJS solutions for this task. Enter Python…

I found an older repo nasa/MMM-py that satisfied my need to read the radar grib data.

Since then I’ve been writing python on a nearly daily basis.

early 2022 - my operations center has permanently moved me into a position as a full time developer as we transition our applications to the cloud.

I really enjoy working with pandas, numpy, and the other data science libraries.
