Compact biography

I've loved open source for over 20 years and fell in love with Python in the last century (1998)!

I've had fun with open source across areas as diverse as astrophysics, civil energy, security, finance, web mining, public inquiries, and government policy.

Previously I co-organised the London Python Meetup. Today, I'm enjoying building new data science and algorithmic art communities, and helping children and artists learn to code.

I'm also the author of a best-selling introductory book on neural networks, and am working on my next book on text mining.
