I started web development in 2000, and began python web development in 2003, long before the days of Django. Much of what I did was hand-rolling frameworks using Paste, CherryPy, SQLAlchemy (when it came along), Cheetah templates, etc. Django has been a real boon to my line of work.
In addition to python web development, I have extensive experience in several other platforms including Java, LISP and production-rule systems for areas including genomics, simulation and cognitive science.
I enjoyed a brief visit to graduate school recently, and have been published on a handful of genomics and cognitive science related papers in journals including Science, Genome Research and BRIMMS.
