Hi. I’m Janet — a coder with interests in embedded programming, IOT (Internet of Things), machine learning, and data analysis. I’m happiest researching, problem-solving, and learning new things.
I got my start in tech back in the dotcom era working on web content, then taught myself web development and went from there. Most recently, I’ve been using Python and C for data analysis and embedded programming.
Besides having a B.Sc degree I’m also a part-time illustrator who graduated from the Emily Carr School of Art + Design. Creative thinking helps me find solutions for programming problems as well as illustration projects.
I’m always teaching myself new things. Recently I’ve been playing with Internet of Things (IOT) devices to control lighting, visualize twitter trends, and monitor temperature in my small indoor garden. I also enjoy repairing and hacking roombas (yes, the robot vacuums).
I run workshops at the Vancouver Hack Space on programming with arduino, surface-mount and through-hole soldering, and other topics.
On this site I’ll be sharing my projects, code samples, and workshop documentation.To get in touch, send me a message.
