This website is Kassidy’s professional & author blog. Here, you’ll find pieces she has written concerning science, data analysis, information technology, software engineering and other creative works.
Kassidy Hall is a neurodiverse technology professional. She sees and experience the world quite differently from most people as a result. Despite its challenges, her neurodiversity enables her to see connections and patterns across multiple disciplines.
While intensely focused on systems/networking and information security, Kassidy’s other professional interests include Agile/DevOps methodologies, programming, and user experience. She believes this interdisciplinary and polymathic approach to skill development is crucial to the success of any technical professional.
As a result of her curiosity, Kassidy has built a successful career in Information Technology spanning the last 10 years. She began working in system & network administration after obtaining an Associate’s degree in 2011. Although her primary experience is in IT administration, she has experience in software development, quality assurance, automation and technical writing. Kassidy has also performed scientific research in computer science to generate computational simulations of lung disease using GillesPy2.
