Hi! I'm David. I am the biodiversity informatics manager at the University and Jepson Herbaria at UC Berkeley. I am more of a data manager than software development, but I am interested in developing my skills as a programmer
In my job I am responsible for the Consortium of California Herbaria (CCH) and the Jepson eFlora, and will also be doing dev for the open source collection management system CollectionSpace. I am interested in managing biodiversity data and developing tools to help people identify plants.
I saw that Nerds for Nature was an affiliate for the Tilden Park bioblitz. I had also read about the Sudo Room and was interested and now am even moreso.
Biodiversity Informatics Manager at UC Berkeley Herbaria. New to the Bay Area and the USA.
