This is something I’ve been meaning to do for a long time. I work on lots of different things, some of them interesting and worth sharing, so what better platform than proceemo.com! On the surface, proceemo is just a little price notifying service I created a while back, primarily for my wife. After a couple years, I thought it would be worth opening it up for the rest of the world, so that’s exactly what I did. Now anyone can sign up and use it, completely free. Yes, there is referral stuff built in so technically I could make some money if enough people bought stuff they get notifications for. But realistically, the volume and commissions are so small they don’t even cover my yearly server and domain costs.
Under the surface though, proceemo is much more. It’s simply a place where I write lots of code, some of it worth sharing, most of it not. At the moment I’m playing with stock trade data, building dynamic portfolios based on specific financial criteria. In the process I created a a pretty decent framework and database to access and store financial data. It is by no means a commercial product, but I’m happy to share the work done so far (proceemo.com/market).
Other than proceemo, my day job is in messaging, so I’m happy to share my experiences with that (when I can). My public work can be viewed on GitHub here: https://github.com/ultramessaging
I also make beer, and I share my recipes here: http://glassbrews.tumblr.com/
And you can find me on Twitter here: https://twitter.com/SteveMGlass – I don’t tweet often, but whatever.
I’m also on LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/glass
That’s it for an intro. More to come in a bit.
