If life were a periodic function of time!

As the crystal rays of sunlight enter into my room, through the tiny perforation in my newly constructed window, and fall on my face, I open my eyes. I open them gently, and pulling myself up, I think. I think if this morning bears any resemblance to any of those memorable ones at AIT. Thinking that against all the odds, against all the contraries this morning be slight like the old fashioned ones. The ones in 304E, the ones in 004C, those in 005C or the ones in 213A! The mornings when I would wake up first only to see my roommates enjoying their sweet sleep and I would jump onto my bed again and moments later I would hear Sood screaming "GET UP ASSHOLE...CLASSES START AT 9.15!" and minutes later, I would find myself in my class...studyng!

Times have changed! They certainly have! I have office to go to. I have a bus to catch. Have work to do. Books to read. I hate to wake up early. I hate to get ready on time! If time could just reverse direction. If life were a periodic function of time! If I could just hear those golden words again.."GET UP ASSHOLE...CLASSES START AT 9.15"

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.


The economics of crypto investing

If you believe in the greater fool theory, there is no other market as speculative and volatile as the crypto market today. We are perhaps living in the biggest bubble of our times. I am not bullish on this market in particular. I am bullish on the mania. 90% of the cryptos we see today will crash. They are just tokens with no tangible value generation capability. However, I believe that the mania and euphoria will stay.

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…

On working remote

The last company I worked for, did have an office space, but the code was all on Github, infra on AWS, we tracked issues over Asana and more or less each person had at least one project they could call "their own" (I had a bunch of them ;-)). This worked pretty well. And it gave me a feeling that working remote would not be very different from this.

So when we started working on our own startup, we started with working from our homes. It looked great at first. I could now spend more time with Mom and could work at leisure. However, it is not as good as it looks like. At times it just feels you are busy without business, that you had been working, yet didn't achieve much. If you are evaluating working from home and are not sure of how to start, or you already do (then please review and add your views in comments) and feel like you were better off in the office, do read on. Remote work is great. But a physical office is better. So if you can, find yourself a co-working sp…
