SaltyCrane Blog —  Notes on Python and web development on Ubuntu Linux

About

I'm Eliot and I work as a Python Web Developer in Southern California. I'm a wannabe computer programmer / geek, Asian American, husband, and Christian in reverse order of importance. My friend, Bill, coined the name, Salty Crane, as a code for my name. I try to be salty, but most of the time I'm sour instead. I have a BS and MS in Mechanical Engineering and had planned to pursue a career in Robotics. Instead, I switched to software in 2003. I worked with C and embedded software for several years then made a bigger jump to web development in 2008. I enjoy programming and try to continually learn as much as possible. In my spare time, I like to play sports, do outdoor activities, and spend time with my wife.
