Bob Rudis (@hrbrmstr) is a famed expert, author and developer in Data Security and the Chief Security Data Scientist at Rapid7. Bob also creates the most deliciously vivid images of his meals documented by the #nom hashtag. I’m going to use a similar method used in my previous projects (Hipster Veggies & Machine Learning Flashcards) to wrangle all those images into a nice collection – mostly for me to look at for inspiration in recipe planning.
