Non-Code Projects

Increasing Rust Reach: I was a 2018 mentor of two amazing mentees. To describe Rust Reach; from the homepage, "This program matches Rust team members from all parts of the project with individuals who are underrepresented in Rust's community and the tech industry for a partnership of three (3) months, from mid-May to mid-August. Each partnership agrees to a commitment of 3–5 hours per week working on a Rust Project."

Introduction to Linux Course: I teach a three (3) to five (5) day workshop on introduction to Linux. The class varies by client, but can span from introduction and basics, to advanced techniques and scripting. This course has been run for classes ranging from three (3) to twelve (12) individuals.

Introduction to Python Course: I teach a three (3) to five (5) day workshop on introduction to Python. This course is complementary to the Introduction to Linux and likewise ranges from new to programming, to only new to Python but skilled at programming. This class has been conducted with sizes ranging from five (5) to fifteen (15) individuals.
