Hello! My name is Grace and I (currently) live in New Zealand. I am studying computer science at University of Waikato.

There are a bunch of things that I would like to blog about. I will make a short list in a moment. Something that I have been thinking about during the creation of this blog is what I am going to talk about and who my target audience will be. I have various projects that I am working on. Right now, I am trying to decide if I am going to focus on the backlogs, or start afresh from today.

Or I could compromise. If I am having a bit of quiet time, I can blog about past projects. I will put the date of when I was working on that project so the projects show up in correct order…

My writing style is more like a diary than formal, how-to articles. I hope that by adding this personal touch, my posts will be more interesting for you as well as me.

Here’s that list of things that I promised:

  • The creation of the Computer Science Student Society at Waikato Uni
  • Learning Android for location aware music application (and working with shitty research software)
  • Anita Borg retreat in Sydney and a reflection on being a women in tech
  • Planning the upcoming Computer Science outreach programme at University of Waikato
  • Working remotely over the summer
  • CommTECH camp in Indonesia
  • Learning flask, data science and making information meaningful
  • Working on a helpdesk and interesting things that happen when doing tech support

If you are reading this blog and there is something from this list you would like to read sooner rather than later, feel free to leave a comment or email me.

Thanks for reading!
