Hi, I'm Laura Kelly. I'm a web developer who builds things in Javascript, Python, and Django. I'm also a freelance mixed media artist in my spare time. I like working with data, creating great user experiences, and building visualizations with D3.js (my favorite Javascript library). I'm an alumna of Hackbright Academy, and I studied philosophy and neuroscience at Washington University in St. Louis prior to becoming a developer. After graduating from Wash. U., I worked in a neuroscience lab at UC Davis for two years studying human memory with fMRI, EEG, and eye-tracking. I taught myself Python to do data analysis in the lab and liked programming so much that I decided to go into web development. At the beginning of July 2012, I participated in my fist hackathon, the LinkedIn DevelopHer Hack Day. We completed MuniMobile in 24 hours and won second place. You can see some of my other projects here or on my GitHub.
