Hi, I am Hannes.
I am a Pythonista at and co-founder of the start-up renooble.com. Coding 8-5 at CrowdStreet.com. Besides that I am interested in various open source projects and developments. Lately, I am spending my development time between Python, and js frameworks, such as AngularJS and ember.js and data science (espcially around machine learning.
Living in Oregon, I am enjoying coffee, food, wine, beer, an amazing tech scene and a million meetups each week.
Feel free to ping me via @hanneshapke
Projects and Endeavors
renooble, Inc. is an innovative start-up which reduced the acquisition costs for new solar customers.
I contributed to this open source API wrapper for Python. It allows Python coders to use the Zillow API in a pythonic way.
This open source API wrapper lets you access the NREL API for utility information for the U.S.
This open source API wrapper lets you access the NREL PVWatts v5 API to calculate the solar potential for any place on earth.
I'm contributing to the rewriting of the latest volunteer application for the Open Source Bridge conference.
This open source library lets you extract the geolocations from images taken with smartphones. This is pretty handy if you want to let your web app users submit photos instead of filling in a lengthy form with location and timezone questions.
motionless lets you create urls for google maps static image API. I contributed to this open source package to increase its functionality.
