Dear Programmers,

My name is rex and i just finished basic medical science training and
now i am transitioning to computers. I was funded by the NIH for eight
years, and have my PhD in biomedicine. I am looking for a mentor who
can help me transition to become a developer. My goals are to
contribute to the Blender Python API and to develop a web app for the
NIH. I have spent the past year on open courseware and app-making
tutorials.

There are published sequences that can be used to automate 3D
rendering of confocal microscopy files using Blender, along with GIMP
and/or Inkscape:

The goal is to have a single page application where scientists can
upload their .wrl file and the app returns a 3D image or multiple
images of the confocal microscopy. In the future we can add options
such as color etc, but if we get the basic shell I would be able to
write a proposal/plan for further development.

There are some Django templates available that may possibly help to
start, i am looking for anyone interested to develop this single page
application.

If anyone is available as a mentor to assist my transition to a
developer, I live in the Los Angeles area, I can travel and work, and
this would be a dream come true. Please feel free to contact me
anytime.
