Currently working on a great project that uses the robin_stocks API and queries some data to help with intelligent investment strategies and an update on the status of my current positions. Ive always enjoyed personal projects that dont get lost after completion and can always be used and upgraded.

An ongoing interest ive had is the programming of vehicle ECUs (Electronic Control Units) and ECMs (Electronic Control Modules), the brains of any vehicle. A lot of these modules are run using some version of MISRA C or low-level programming language. Using software that allows one to access this level of the vehicle code such as VCDS can make for some fun personal projects.

The next project I want to take on is one that involves some form of cryptography or cyber security. This is a topic of the computer science field that has always fascinated me and is one that is integral to every faction of our technological world.

Get in touch.
