I love algorithms, optimisation and firmware. I'm a C++ programmer who has recently realised that Python is far more fun, usable and productive and can't stop talking about it. I live in sunny Auckland with my two kids, my wife and my bank of three monitors (bare minimum, I know)
I am creating a power monitoring system called Gridspy which has a web-based user interface. That is a great mix of Django, Twisted, Firmware in Keil C and all those other web technologies. I blog about it here.
