New side project, kinda 

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: github.com/preslavrachev/panda

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 . I am a genuinely curious individual, born and raised in 🇧🇬, currently living in 🇩🇪. As a software engineer, I have worked on projects spanning , and .

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)

> Estimates are such a loaded and dangerous endeavor for an engineer. To the point where companies mistakenly talk about estimates like its a “skill” that an engineer can learn. But the reality is that if you can make a probabalistically accurate estimate, then its likely that the task should have been automated by some other means already.

If you are planning to build what is generally considered a layered application, would you split your packages into layers (e.g. persistence, logic, presentation, etc) or by domain (user, order, product, etc)?

I guess, both are correct, and coming from Java, I would have split it by layers, but I know that Go developers prefer otherwise.

if you think about it, modern AI is more organic than technology usually is. instead of being built upon abstractions like the ancient lisp machines of yore, a modern neural network is a spider's web of incomprehensible connections, trained for centuries of computing time to recognize the organic.

For athletes, rest is not a reward. It's part of their strict training schedule.

Software teams need the same rhythm of sprinting and resting.

If your team is constantly churning out features, performance will suffer.

An island gets popular on some obscure travel blog.

Travelers discover the beautiful beaches.

Resort hotels see an opportunity.

It becomes a tourist destination. Everything that attracted the travelers is now gone.

Mass tourism.

That's what happened to the movement.

3 things gratitude list 

I'm also learning to realize is just how much in "the past" the past is. It doesn't have near as much control over you as you think it does.

And neither do people, so living for what they think of you is a waste of energy.

I'm not totally sure what to do with that, other than ...just do things. I've spent way too much of my life doing nothing to avoid mistakes, and it's honestly where most of my regrets come from.

Make decisions, own them, and remember life goes on.

Enjoy, and don't hesitate to come back to me with your feedback and suggestions!

I just discovered about:serviceworkers in Firefox .. and boy, did I have no idea how many of them were registered with my browser 🤯
