Hi! I’m Issac. I try hard to learn new things but I’ve always been kind of a non-traditional student. I dropped out of high school and then dropped out of college.
Getting kicked out of school for two months and being told to learn by myself on the internet would have been a dream for me.
I know that schools are closing and that other in-person events like Black Girls Code are being canceled and delayed and I want to help out.
I also am dealing with my own cabin fever from a surprise work-from-home situation and my ...

Jesse and I are writing back and forth about a project he’s working on to build a screenless qwerty note-taking device.
Jesse is a very capable software hacker with some hardware tinkering behind him. If you’re following along, your mileage may vary, but feel free to write with your own questions and ideas.

You mentioned that you’re into an iterative approach. I am too! One of the things that I like to do early-on ...
You sent me a note some time time ago about wanting to build a hardware project and not quite knowing what the next steps were.
The project you listed was a note taking device with the following capabilities
There’s an important question from me to you: What’s your goal?
If we haven't met yet, I'm Issac.
I am an engineering manager at a company in San Francisco (though they're a worldwide company) called Stripe. I am inside a group called Treasury Engineering, where I work on helping manage Stripe's liquidity and foreign exchange products and services both internally and for Stripe's customers.
This is not about Stripe but I'll say: It's really quite nice to be able to say all of that.
From April 2017 until September 2019 I worked for "Astra". They are building a small disposable orbital launch vehicle, or ideally, dozens of ...
I'm Issac. I live in Oakland. I make things for fun and money. I use electronics and computers and software. I manage teams and projects top to bottom. I've worked as a consultant, software engineer, hardware designer, artist, technology director and team lead. I do occasional fabrication in wood and plastic and metal. I run a boutique interactive agency with my brother Kasey and a roving cast of experts at Kelly Creative Tech. I was the Director of Technology for Nonchalance during the The Latitude Society project. I was the Lead Web Developer and then Technical Marketing Engineer at Nebula, which made an OpenStack Appliance. I've been building things on the web and in person since leaving Ohio State University's Electrical and Computer engineering program in 2007. Lots of other really dorky things happened to me before that, like dropping out of high school to go to university, getting an Eagle Scout award, and getting 6th in a state-wide algebra competition. I have an affinity for hopscotch.
