Run a highlighter of doom over the suburbs near and dear to you
I’m about to meet a lot of new people in my Information Management course and online, so here’s a bit about myself, 2020 version. As a young Generation Xer (a ‘Xennial’?) I have grown up with modern society’s transition from lifelong careers to multiple careers. I first enrolled in the Master of Information Management at RMIT in 1999 when I was working as a library officer at the City of Boroondara, but was lured away by a career in public health and research data management.
tl;dr: I have withdrawn from my PhD and will start a Master of Information Management in February 2020. From mid-2017 to mid-2018, I was enrolled in a PhD at the University of Divinity, on the topic of queer Christian autobiographies as expressions of practical theology. At the time, it felt like synchronicity. In mid-2017 Australia was in the throes of the marriage equality postal survey and the diversity of Christian perspectives on sexuality was finally becoming more widely known.
I have recently started attending PyLadies Melbourne as it’s a welcoming community and I have been spending a bit more time with Python. The March meetup was a comparison of various editors and IDEs (Integrated Development Environments) and I volunteered to demonstrate Atom. Although I haven’t spent a lot of time with Python yet, I have been using Atom for a few years and offered to talk about it as no one else had volunteered.
