Hi, I’m Shawn

I am a Canadian technology entrepreneur currently living outside Coffs Harbour, NSW, Australia.  I am one half of North & South Nomads, run Sanswork where we provide technology and tender writing services and am also a co-founder of Maplegum Ventures and YellowCAKE Media.

I love programming in a lot of languages and frameworks though I am currently focused on Elixir, Phoenix, Javascript, and React.

After trying repeatedly to consistently blog and failing I’ve decided to use this blog as a personal book club.  I have a long backlog of technical books to read so I’ll be posting notes and projects and code as I go.

Current Backlog(in no order)

  • Think Stats
  • Practical Statistics for Data Scientists
  • Data Science from Scratch
  • Fundamentals of Deep Learning
  • CODE
  • The Elements of Computing Systems
  • Hands on Machine Learning with Scikit-Learn and TensorFlow
  • SICP
  • Book of Proof
  • The Algorithm Design Manual
  • Purely Functional Data Structures
  • Designing Data-Intensive Applications
  • Genetic Algorithms and Machine Learning for Programmers
  • Property-Based Testing with PropEr, Erlang and Elixir
  • Using SVG with CSS3 and HTML5
  • The Data Warehouse ETL Toolkit
  • The Data Warehouse Toolkit
  • The Data Warehouse Lifecycle Toolkit

As you can see I have a lot of work to do!
