New side project, kinda Show more
In case anyone is interested, I have started work on a tiny wrapper on top of Pandas, which would add support for technical analysis and back testing of pricing strats: https://github.com/preslavrachev/pandas-ta
I have long wished for an easy way to attach various indicators as Pandas columns, by just following a simple naming convention. Pandas-TA is supposed to help with that.
NOTE: This lib is in an extremely early and ugly stage, and should serve only as a PoC for now. Feedback is always welcome
Let me do a proper #introduction. I am a genuinely curious individual, born and raised in 🇧🇬, currently living in 🇩🇪. As a software engineer, I have worked on projects spanning #gamedev, #fintech and #dataanalytics.
I hate the status quo. I am a natural-born builder and tinkerer. Programming is my way of building things, and so are reading, writing, blogging, and making music.
Last, but not least, I am a long-distance running wannabe, who dreams of running an ultra-marathon one day (a long way to go)

I am selling the Google Pixel XL 3 I bought off eBay a few weeks ago. It's a great phone, and my reasons have all to do with Google, and nothing to do with its hardware.

The best way to get rid of job recruiters - tell them you're interested in working less hours, than earning more money. Guaranteed, you won't hear from them again. Ever. #futureofwork
I’ve been working on a revamp of my personal site https://preslav.me It’s a move away from #Ghost and back to static site generators, however, this time I am using #Hugo instead of #Jekyll. Hugo’s performance is blazing. Even with the quite a few pages it has to render, it still builds the entire site in sub-500 ms intervals. For comparison, it took Jekyll up to a minute to do the same.
It's a wonder we could do our taxes before the internet.
I remember those paper guide books, and the many, many erasings in certain fields. Ugh. And the unclear wordings that you couldn't really be sure you were interpreting correctly. Being able to find several different web sites discussing each line makes it much easier.
I'm convinced that every website should be #ActivityPub capable. All dumb walled gardens would be destroyed when we do this.
