- Limited coding and contribution to CKAN, specifically on:

- OKFN Dashboard hackday
- Africa at Home hackday where I worked on PyBossa – an opensource crowdsourcing engine. PyBossa is a port the BOSSA crowdsourcing engine to python (a bit like an opensource mechanical turk but without money!) and with an initial focus on helping scientists and other researchers crowd-source human problem-solving skills!
