The Beginning of the Middle?

So I am looking for a job… I do a search on Data Visualization Boston trying to find some company I saw a few years ago that I thought looked cool, building data visualization tools, what was their name? Instead I find the Boston Data Vis meetup, which is having their first meeting in months TONIGHT. Humm… Sister visiting from Africa… hang out with her tonight, or go to the meetup? I go to the meetup. Very cool. Now child-like excited about a new field. At moments TERRIFIED because what skills does an embedded software developer have that are relevant to data vis? Well, still excited, so here begins a journey.

Definitely starting in the middle.
