Since I have begun working in banking industry, I will start a new learning project. I will rewrite my previous currency collector to use the OpenExchangeRate API for real-time data for a given set of currencies like Bitcoin, ethereum, USD, NOK and EUR. The OER API supports the following currencies. At the current time, the developer plan only cost 12$/month with 10K calls to the API – a good deal, if you as me.
My new employer komplettbank.no offers consumer loans and credit cards at the moment. But in my learning project, I will expand this to involve currency loans and maybe blockchain with bitcoins and ethereum.
I will create entities for customer, account, loan and currency, in addition to supporting entities for calculating risk and corralation. My goal will also include to add some machine learning into this for a starter. In addition, i will create a BOT for asking for currency rates and currency conversions.
My goals will be to use Azure SQL, Web Apps and Azure Functions and/or Azure App Fabric for a Microservice application architecture.
Happy coding and designing…
