After a long time of lurking it is time for me to say hello.

I spend most of my digital time working on the Qtile WM, for which I am a core dev. I also work on other little projects, most of which are permanently half-finished. I am also big into math rock and neuroscience (my day job).

What brought me and kept me here was the unique and creative things that many of you produce, and many of your projects inspire my own projects.

I look forward to becoming more involved in the community \o/

Welcome mcol, it's nice to see more "lurkers" give it a try and participate with the community.

I'm wondering what got you from neuroscience to Linux (if it happened in that order or are related at all)

Hello acg and phillbush

I feel very welcomed! :)

I first realised how awesome computers are when I was using matlab for data analysis in a neuro lab as a research assistant. From there I quickly discovered programming languages that don't suck and linux and stuff. I have since crafted my experiments in a way that maximises my use of computers, so in my current research project I train mice in behavioural experiments controlled by raspberry pis using a python program, and all my data analysis is done on a beefy server in python. So it did happen in that order, but they aren't directly related :)
