Coder offers free stock-charting tool
The idea of sharing code among developers and programmers has a long and rich tradition, from Steve Wozniak’s handouts at the Homebrew Computer Club in the 1970s to today’s open-source repositories like GitHub.
Web developers can use Wencong’s code to draw a historical stock chart for a given stock ticker and insert it into a financial blog or portal.
Wencong is a 29-year-old Singaporean who earned a diploma in Management Studies while doing programming to earn money on the side.
He said he created the stock charting tool because he couldn’t find a good one through open-source channels.
