I currently live just outside of Boston, Massachusetts with my wife, but am originally from Perth, Western Australia.
I have been developing open source software and working with web technologies since 1993 and have been using Python since 1998. For the last twelve years, I have been working with Django. I am the creator and lead developer of Pinax.
I do a lot of work at the intersection of computers and philology, especially in relation to Ancient and Biblical Greek. You can read a lot more about this work at my other site jktauber.com.
My first degree was in linguistics. I recently completed a Postgraduate Diploma in Ancient Greek (with Distinction) and am currently undertaking a Certificate in Educational Research Methodology (focused on measurement and assessment) and a Certificate in Germanic Philology. I have also studied musicology and music theory and have completed over thirty MOOCs on topics ranging from language teaching to astronomy to philosophy to molecular biology.
I am a technologist, an entrepreneur, a scholar and an artist.
