I am a software developer, with a background in computer engineering, signal processing, programming languages, information retrieval, image/video, and music/audio. I've got experience with projects large and small; commercial, non-profit, open-source, and academic. I have used all sorts of programming languages and paradigms, from Z80 assembly language to ML. Right now, I'm way into Python.

I love tricky problems, elegant solutions, and learning new things in general. I believe programming is an art, as much as any piece of music or visual work, which I feel qualified to say as an avid amateur musician and photographer. I'm constantly proven right when I encounter incredibly clever methods of problem solving on a daily basis here on Stack Overflow.

comment Unit testing in Django
Sounds great hypothetically, but when it comes to project maintenance, I think there's a non trivial cost to inserting a custom-made persistence layer between the business logic and the extremely well-documented Django ORM. Suddenly, the classes become packed with a bunch of tiny intermediary methods that themselves need to be refactored over time. But perhaps this is justified in places where testability is critical.

comment Unit testing in Django
That's helpful, but doesn't really address the issue of how to best test inherently stateful, ORM-heavy applications.
