An Open Declaration of Love 1.0

I PULLED my eyes from the dustry window of my room 005C, from the view of that wired-fence that wraps AIT, and watched my room-mate Sarkar, struggled to raise himself from his bed. It was 6 in the evening and he had had his length of the little evening nap. “You can’t get up, Dude.” I pressed my fingers into his shoulder, and he glared at me, his brown eyes wild with sleep. “What is Love ?”, I asked. Startled by this Avatar, he replied, “It's too tricky. You won't understand.”

Why would I not understand ? Am I too bad a thinker ? Or I am too bad a person ? He had just put me into deep retrospection. Am I different ? Or is it just because I think too much ? Or is it because I AM DIFFERENT ?

Having said that, should one consider investing in this market? Certainly!
The risk/reward is lovely, potential upsides and margins are huge and with 3-5% of your net worth, the bet on the mania is worth it.

How does one choose where to invest?

If you follow the stock markets, you are expected to do thorough Fundamental Analysis before investing. Expect the same for the crypto market. I invest in large caps. I invest in index funds. And I invest over and over again. Markets rise, always. Extrapolating the same strategy - invest in indices - the top 10 tokens by perfo…

Capture and compare stdout in python unit tests

A recent fan of TDD, I set out to write tests for whatever comes my way. And there was one feature where the code would print messages to the console. Now - I had tests written for the API but I could not get my head around ways to capture these messages in my unittests.
After some searching and some stroke of genius, here's how I accomplished capturing stdout.


Learn frontend to get good at backend : lessons for my 20 year old self

Only when you are the consumers of your own products, can you design the best ones! Same philosophies go for API design and programming in general.

This advice may seem counter-intuitive at first, but trust me, the best way to get better at backend programming is to spend some time doing frontend! It will teach you a lot about how your APIs are being used in the "real world". A first-hand experience of API consumption will tell you a lot about your design philosophies!
