Top 5 Posts

I just noticed I passed 100 posts a little while ago. Small potatoes in comparison to the geometrically increasing data puking contest that is the Internet. Nevertheless, as we close out 2009, I thought it would be interesting to review the top five posts:

1) Delta and Mark-to-Market. A brief explanation of corporate synthetic tranche value sensitivity to the underlying portfolio.
2) Use…for the children. Track your baby's sleep schedule (and pretty much anything else) via Twitter.
3) Sqlite and Sqlalchemy. An example of using python and a popular object-relational mapper.
4) Using Google Apps Python Provisioning API. An example of pulling user data via the python API and writing it to excel.
5) Use python and sqlite3 to build a database. A quick intro to python's sqlite3 module.

The "best of the rest":

It's been an interesting year. While most of my posts are derived from Interweb tidbits I find interesting, my original posts were much more popular (according to the admittedly crude Posterous stats). I have no ambitions for this blog, but I hope some of the factoids featured here have helped you or at least offered some entertainment. Best wishes for 2010!
