Projects


I currently have two projects; Transforming Donald Trump’s Tweets in cash and My Floor Piano.

Donald Trump’s Tweets in cash : Details
Trump's uses it to Tweets strong opinions about all sorts of things. Occasionally, those opinions are targeted at publicly traded companies.
My idea is some code that constantly monitors Trump’s feed and analyzes each tweet for mentions of publicly traded companies and then, you’d immediately trade the affected stocks based on the detected sentiment: buy if positive and short if negative.

My Floor Piano : Details
Who doesn't want to dance around on a giant floor piano like Tom Hanks in Big?
This is a project with Makey Makey and Scratch.
In case you are not familiar with it, a Makey Makey is a kit that allows you turn everyday objects into touchpads that you can use to interface with a computer.
