My name is Ryan Kelly, this is the webpage that I have to protect my Internet Presence from potential presence-poachers.
Here, you can learn about me.
aka things I get paid to do
My title is vague, but what it boils down to is that I spend my time creating web-based tools to help other people do their jobs more efficiently and make their workday easier. Sometimes people ask me to help them with Excel. Excel is a wonderful program, but sometimes people expect it to work wonders. It's like asking an '88 Tercel to win a WRC race in 2016.
I primarily support the North American Wholesale team. Much of what I do involves taking reports that take forever to run (in Cognos) and make them more user friendly, add images (yaaay pictures), and compile data in a way that is interesting.
I announce a bunch of bike races - mostly during cross season.
In 2016 I have announced/will announce/will talk at:
I also help promote the Exeter Classic with my best friend Drew Szeliga.
Really only helpful if you are a bike race announcer or promoter
I have a few Python scripts up on GitHub to help make compiling data for announcing races easier.
I currently live in Exeter, NH. There is a great bike shop in town.
I like riding road bikes, and I think bikes are friggin' awesome. I am a terrible mountain biker, but I am starting to enjoy it.
Don't know if you could tell, but I really like Bootstrap. It's nice, makes my life easier, and I'd rather focus on the back-end. Also, I am colorblind (red/green, so yes I can see colors but not the full spectrum), so not having to worry about colors (or...just doing everything in grayscale) makes my life much easier.
Look at how great I am at racing my bike
