I’m Claude Schrader, a dad, community focused tech enthusiast, and lifelong Philadelphian.

I’m on the board of Arcadia Commons, a local nonprofit formed to help save and protect greenspaces around East Kensington. As development activity in this neighborhood increases, we are working to help ensure some of it remains safe and accessible to everyone to enjoy.

About the Site:

From 2004 until January 2018, I worked in Information Technology. I developed strong expertise in Linux and Unix systems administration, networking, storage, and scripting and automation.

After noticing the growth and opportunity surrounding data-focused jobs, in January 2018 I decided to shift my career a bit and go back to school at Temple University for a Professional Science Masters in GIS. This site served as a place for me to document my education as I shifted my career into an exciting new direction.
