About Us

We are current students in the San Quentin Code.7370 web development training class. For project phase of the curriculum we collaborated with Princeton University's Dr. Micaela Martinez-Bakker, an infectious disease ecologist, to implement an interactive data visualization.

The six week project was developed, for Project Tycho, to deploy as a fun and interactive alternative to static data visualizations. The web application we developed allows users to scroll through time-lines of the cases of measles, chickenpox, polio and influenza in the United States.


Aly Tamboura

Employable in 10 months as a returned citizen.

I am a front-end developer specializing in interactive web application engineering.

I have one year experience in client-side technologies with an emphasis on mobile first, agile web architecture using JavaScript, HTML5, CSS3, JQuery and Angular (MVC), to build a rich array of projects.

My interest is working in data visualizations using d3.js, NVD3.js, flot2.js and other libraries to transform raw data into interactive, vibrant visualizations.

When I am not programming, you can find me learning about new modern solutions to produce web based applications for clients.

In my spare time you can find me in the ocean scuba diving, spear fishing or partaking in my passion: underwater photography.

The Last Mile and Code 7370 changed my life!

I am front-end web application developer. I have six months experience with HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, and js libraries J-Query, D3., as well as Twitter's Bootstrap.

My goal is to evolve into a full stack software engineer specializing in interactive data visualizations.

Outside of software engineering I enjoy working with diverse teams to develop community solutions. I am the co-founder of two self-help programs: Members of Modern American Society (a life skills program teaching job readiness, financial literacy, and business planning), and Green Life, which stresses the importance of healthy, sustainable living.

I am currently working to bring Toastmasters International back to San Quentin.

As Salaamu Alaikum! (Peace be upon you) Change is indeed possible

I am a client-side web developer and application architect with six months experience in writing computer code. I am proficient with JavaScript, HTML5, CSS3, Twitter Bootstrap and jQuery.

As I evolve, I am focused on learning the UI/UX side. My interest are in creating aesthetically pleasing, fun and interactive user environments.

I continue to gain experience in client-side technologies with each new js library I explore and use. My curiosity and pursuit of knowledge constantly takes me deeper into the exciting world of computer science.

When I am not coding I love to exercise and follow sports. But my passion is studying Al-Islam and immersion in my community.
