I'm interested in working on machine learning/data science/NLP projects, and in contributing to open source. I currently work as a software engineering for an AI start-up. I've been coding (mainly in Python) for about two years now.
I have many years of experience in backend development; good knowledge in Python, Ruby, C and Shell Script, and a strong background on algorithms. I can support people who want to learn about web development, scripting and algorithms.
I have experience with IT since 2005, and with development since 2009. I've done a lot of web stuff, I'm a full stack engineer and currently, I've been on a team lead role.
I'd like to help get people from knowing very little (or nothing) about programming to the point where they are comfortable enough to start working on small projects of their own. - In my own experience , that is the most important hurdle to get over.
