I am now a programmer, but I have a MA degree in Latin linguistics. My thesis was about elision in Latin poetry, and I'm mostly interested in pronunciation and verse scansion.
In my spare time, I'm working on an Open Source automated Latin verse scansion tool; its code is hosted on Github. The engine scans over 95% of the Aeneis' hexameters correctly. The site is under heavy development and will be suffering from featuritis soon.
