project Betfair, part 4
@mildbyte 5 years, 12 months ago | programming | python | betfair |
Introduction Previously on project Betfair, we implemented a simple market making strategy and backtested it against some horse races, with disastrous results. Today, things get better. Greyhounds Though most of this has been done on horse racing markets, I was ...
project Betfair, part 3
@mildbyte 6 years ago | programming | python | betfair |
Introduction Previously on project Betfair, we started collecting dumps of Betfair order book data from the Stream API and learned how to reconstruct series of events from those with the aim of using them to backtest a market making strategy. ...
project Betfair, part 2
@mildbyte 6 years ago | programming | python | betfair |
Probably the hardest thing about writing this will be piecing together what I was doing and thinking at the time. Keeping a development diary was a great idea, it's just a shame I started it 1/3 of the way into ...
project Betfair, part 1
@mildbyte 6 years ago | programming | betfair | 1 comment
Introduction Like I had said in a previous post, I tried my hand at automated trading on Betfair for a couple of months. While I didn't make much money from it, I still think there are a lot of cool ...
What have I been up to
@mildbyte 6 years ago | admin | programming | kimonote | betfair | 1 comment
It's been more than 3 months since my last post. Have I finally sunk into the depths of depression and debauchery since leaving my job? Do I start my day by waking up at 11am and having a mimosa? Do ...
News from Paddington, introduction
@mildbyte 6 years, 4 months ago | paddington | writing |
In the middle of 2015 I moved to London for my first job and wrote a few Facebook posts about my new life. As I found some of my friends quoting them at random, I decided to continue documenting my ...
News from Paddington, 2017-07-31
@mildbyte 6 years, 4 months ago | paddington | writing |
...By about 10am I had made the decision to throw the badminton rackets away. It's amazing how much extra stuff you become willing to let go of when your mission is to pack the contents of a large room into ...
Let's go on a treasure hunt!
@mildbyte 6 years, 4 months ago | programming | games | python | telegram | bots |
Chatbots are basically a clunky commandline interface to things that sometimes really need a custom UI. But what if I do want to make something that uses some of the features (a GPS receiver, a camera, a microphone) that a ...
project Morrowind, part 7
@mildbyte 6 years, 4 months ago | programming | games | morrowind | python |
So that you don't think that the 1-year delay in posting part 6 was due to me manually drawing the population heatmaps in Paint, I finally split the code I used to produce all the plots into a set of ...
project Morrowind, part 6
@mildbyte 6 years, 4 months ago | programming | games | morrowind | python |
I told you I'd be back in a year's time. With Aryon safe back in his tower and with all inhabitants of the island maximising the efficiency of their travel, it was time to approach a new challenge and create ...
Perils of running your own server
@mildbyte 6 years, 4 months ago | programming |
A couple of days of this site being up and I've already made some friends. I used a simple lighttpd log analyzer called Visitors (that apparently was written by antirez of Redis fame!) to see who was actually looking at ...
I'm static now
@mildbyte 6 years, 4 months ago | admin |
After a few days of tinkering with Hakyll and migrating my pages from WordPress and making sure everything looks okay, as well as dealing with stuff like compiling Haskell on a box with 512MB RAM and buying the cheapest domain ...
project Morrowind, part 5
@mildbyte 7 years, 4 months ago | programming | games | morrowind | python |
Look what I found in my drafts folder. Welcome back to project Morrowind. The nice visualization of where Aryon could be was very close now. I went with the stupidest approach: go through all pixels on the map, convert each ...
project Morrowind, part 4
@mildbyte 7 years, 6 months ago | programming | games | morrowind | python |
Welcome back to project Morrowind, in which we use technology to oppress people for our own political gains. A couple of hungover Telvanni wizards came by to my house this Saturday morning. They went to Master Aryon's tower the night ...
project Morrowind, part 3
@mildbyte 7 years, 8 months ago | programming | games | morrowind | python |
Today on project Morrowind, we take decades of research into rendering 3D scene descriptions to beautiful photorealistic worlds and throw it away. I finally give up on any nontrivial formatting in WordPress and hope it can't mangle text in pictures. ...
