I am Xavier Ho. Jump to Glide is my online home to talk about data visualisation, creative programming art, and my software endeavours. I wear multiple hats a day.
As a Software Crafter at CSIRO's Data61, I focus on high-impact, real-time data visualisation, data-driven engineering, and design. My recent project with CSIRO's TraNSIT was recommended by the Office of Northern Australia, and my team won the Australian Government’s Agricultural Competitiveness White Paper.
As a Doctor of Philosophy candidate at Design Lab, the University of Sydney, my research area is in network visualisation and games studies, and inspirations and motivations of participants at game jams. My latest data visualisation is of the history and influence of roguelike games, called Roguelike Universe.
As a public speaker, I participate in meetups, conferences, and educational events in my personal time. I have given over 50 public talks and workshops on data visualisation and design, including 2 invited seminars at UNSW and Monash University.

I am available for giving technical talks, consulting in data-driven projects, and collaboration on real-time visualisation work. You can find me on Twitter (@Xavier_Ho), Github (@Spaxe), and reach me by email <email@example.com>.
