I'm going to go ahead and brag. I got accepted to speak at CodeMash 2015 in January. This is the biggest conference I have been accepted to (over 2000 people last year) and it is in high demand selling out in just a matter of minutes online. (One of the organizers likes to brag about the year they crashed EventBrite.) So the only way to guarantee a ticket is to be a speaker. Made my reservations this morning and splurged for the good hotel room with the full kitchen and fireplace since I'm going to be there 5 nights. I'll be doing my talks on Google Cloud Platform (formerly just App Engine) and Dart. <bragOver/>

Is there a way to determine when a sidebar has been closed?  As in Google Sheets or Docs?

What sidebar?  The comment area?
I don't think they generate triggers.

Story
Tagline
Pythonic polyglot, data science/machine learning, OSS .NET, live in the cloud, mobile, JS optimist, @PyTennessee organizer - I try not to annoy others w/my code
Introduction

Currently, I am seeking my next career opportunity. 

My focus is on mobile, cloud and web software development using Python, C# and JavaScript. I am a Pythonic polyglot meaning that while Python is my language of choice, I do not hesitate to use the right tool for the job. I have experience using Python, Java, PHP, .NET (C#) and JavaScript.

I am seeking remote opportunities with companies who value software developers who want to do quality work. I am not interested in making quick fixes to get software working and then wait until it breaks again. I want to be able to create something that I don't mind putting my name on. In addition, I am seeking opportunities with market rate compensation that understand work/life balance.

I am also a frequent speaker in the Memphis and surrounding area. In the past year I have been selected as a speaker at DevLink, St. Louis Days of .NET and TechCampMemphis. In addition I am a co-director of the Memphis Python User Group an a organizer of PyTennessee.

Bragging rights
I have made it 24 hours without turning on a computer .. but only once.
