@ssmusoke, thanks for posting this ( and for all that you are doing).


This is awesome!!! I think there’s a small typo in there, so I’ll just edit it. Hope that’s ok!

@jeffneiman Go ahead and update, thanks

@ssmusoke Would you be willing to work with @jeffneiman and @amcpherson to put together a write up (aka case study) about this work?
