I spoke Aaron Smith. Aaron is a Scotland based Medical Doctor. Yes, you've heard me well! A Medical Doctor!
That is what caught my attention about Aaron. I came across his name as I was researching about a web-scraping Python library called Scrapy. Aaron had published several articles on the topic and after digging his profile I realized he is actually a Professor and Medical Doctor.
Wow! What is a medical doctor doing with Python coding? I had to figure it out. This question lead me to having a conversation with Aaron, where we have explored how his desire to helping his patients brought him to web-scraping and workflow automation.
You can say that coding became a sort of creative outlet for Aaron.
Come with me while we explore the intersection between coding and healthcare.
