What would you like to get out of this meetup group?

I'd like to meet other developers in the Seattle area and make some progress on an idea for a mobile survey application.

What are your primary skills and/or areas to hack on? (e.g. front-end, back-end, UX, UI, hardware, graphics, etc.)

I'm equally comfortable with frontend and backend programming. I'm somewhat familiar with network administration.

What are your favorite tools? (e.g. languages, frameworks, devices, software, conceptual models, etc.)

My favorite stack: AWS instance running Ubuntu with Apache, Django, and MySQL. Server-side code written in Python or Java, clientside code written in JavaScript/JQuery. PhoneGap for cross-platform mobile development, either PHPDesigner or Netbeans as IDEs. I can write C# or PHP in a pinch, and I'm currently learning about Hadoop.

What's something cool you've built recently? (it's okay if you haven't)

Scripts to perform a genome-wide association study of 4,000 people. I'm currently working on a Hadoop-based distributed version.

If you've been to hackathons in the past, what was the best you've ever been to?

The Princeton Entrepreneurship Club's Hack Weeks, because they had great classes about tools and product design.


CS major/neuroscience minor, hugely interested in big data, mobile computing, and their applications to sociology, psychology & economics. Currently a PM at Microsoft, interested in entrepreneurship.
