This morning I gave a talk at PyCon AU in Sydney about how I built a lighting solution for my macro photography. I want to give the resources so other people can use my code and build their own light rig. The code is here: https://github.com/geekgirlbeta/MacroLighting/blob/master/code.py The hardware I used for this project: ***DISCLAIMER*** (I am… Continue reading Lighting Macro Photography With Circuitpython
I’ve not spoken at as many conferences as some, but I spoken at a few and in that time I’ve started to build a survival kit that is serving me well. ** IMPORTANT** I am NOT being paid to promote any of these products and some are appearing because it is what I had available… Continue reading Speaker’s Survival Kit
When I started developing LinkApp, my link aggregator, I knew would need to identify each link. I also made the choice to use Redis as my database and that would require a key for identification purposes. With my first pass of building this application I decided to make an ID using the URL. My logic… Continue reading Excuse me. I’m going to need to see your ID.

So I did a thing. A thing I’ve talked about on here but I did it. I gave my first international talk at PyCon Australia. I’m beyond excited to share it because it’s been uploaded to YouTube. Enjoy!

This is my first talk abroad, I was a bit nervous but everyone here is so amazing that the… Continue reading PyCon Australia 2017
It’s not just what you learn, but how you apply it. A mantra I’ve lived by my whole life. I’m one of those unusual cases in tech. I don’t have a Computer Science degree, as a matter of fact, I have an Art degree. To be specific, I have a degree in Photography. With that… Continue reading PyCon Australia!
A constant barrage of links. Each one vital for me to read but I can’t read them now. That’s where my little application I’ve written comes in. It’s also how I learned some very cheeky coding. Take a look at the source code: https://github.com/geekgirlbeta/linkapp The application allows a user to make a post with a… Continue reading Ding Ding Ding
In my ideal world I would have been making posts regularly but I don’t think any of us live in that world. The reality is that while I’ve been working on my projects things have come up. Life is not always something you can schedule or put off. Life just happened to me, in a… Continue reading Right. One… two… five!
