Beginnings

I’ve worked in GIS for a while and I’ve made a lot of pretty maps.  I’ve enjoyed it but I want to stay relevant in a field that keeps moving forward exponentially.  I’ve learned basic Python (Code Academy) and JavaScript (Khan Academy).  I gave myself a crash course in web GIS by using TileMill (evolved into Mapbox Studio) to create a traffic volume map – it was simpler than trying to explain vehicle counts over the phone.  I didn’t take any coding classes in college and the need for it was never really made clear.  I’m off to a late start but I’m making up for lost time and there are so many good resources out there that I’m spoiled for choice.  I see this as a place where I can record what happens, good or bad.  Trying to outlogic a computer tends to end in infinite loops for both the machine and the user.  Here goes nothing!
