Hi there, my name is Dave and I’m a jack-of-all-trades (well, at least when it comes to the tech world).
By day, I’m a coder working with Python and data, using all the coolest open source tools on Linux. But by night, I transform into a trading machine, using my mad programming skills to run automated back tests and even do some automated trading. It’s pretty sweet – programming and trading go hand in hand for me.
But it’s not all about the money (well, okay, maybe it’s a little bit about the money). I also believe that anyone can and should learn how to code and understand how the internet and web technologies work. It’s an essential part of being a well-rounded, tech-savvy human in today’s world.
I’m a self-taught programmer who has been tinkering with all things tech for many, many years. It all started with running Debian Linux on my desktop (and later, laptop) – back in the day, it wasn’t always easy to get all the hardware working perfectly, so I had to do a lot of hacking and scripting to get everything up and running. From there, I taught myself how to set up web servers and run websites, including databases.
My first professional IT job was as an eCommerce manager, setting up a web shop for a fashion company. But I quickly realized that I was more of a craftsman than a manager, so I moved on to jobs where I could actually work on software. Over the years, I’ve worked with a variety of stacks and technologies, including:
- Windows server
- Linux server
- and many more.
You could say I’m a full-stack developer – I’ve got a little bit of experience with everything!
I’ve also worked with various frameworks like:
- and VueJS.
Right now, I’m focusing mainly on back-end work using Python and PostgreSQL. In my day job, I deal with a lot of data and I build data ingestion and processing pipelines, APIs, and front-ends on a dockerized infrastructure. It’s a lot of fun and I’m always learning new things!
