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'm convinced that every website should be #ActivityPub capable. All dumb walled gardens would be destroyed when we do this.

There are two types of #Python devs. Those who have imported antigravity and those who haven't 😄
Is anyone else also missing the battery indicator on the #MacBookPro?
Thanks to Reddit for reminding me about this nice and underrated feature.
Technologists should work more towards digitalization and less following the next shiny thing.
We already skipped a couple of steps between Excel and machine learning, this means that many people were left behind.
This isn't good in the long run because to fully harness the digitalization power we need most of the people to be on board, and not left drowning
Introducing DevNotes: https://preslav.me/2019/03/10/introducing-devnotes/ or why I started working on a wiki as a complement to my blog.
"[Proving you're human by] selecting all the traffic lights, crosswalks, and storefronts in an image grid. Soon the traffic lights were buried in distant foliage, the crosswalks warped and half around a corner, the storefront signage blurry and in Korean. There’s something uniquely dispiriting about being asked to identify a fire hydrant and struggling at it."
TIL that as of version 8, #vim has had its own native plugin management system. So, no need for #pathogen or #vundle anymore? https://devnotes.space/programming/tools/IDEs/vim/
