A bit more?
Here is some of the fields I’m curious about:

- OpenWeb technologies / hacking web apps and another course on optimizing web forms.
- ChromeOS – Which I had the pleasure to be the first developer advocate for it.
- Mobile development
- HTML5 (e.g. WebWorkers, web databases, indexedDB )
- Data mining and problems with ‘Big Data’ (e.g. Hacking around Yahoo finance API)
- Design/Amazing UIs
- Java and some PHP

Thank you for this post:
but i was wondering if u know how to fetch the type of currency it is. For example, http://finance.yahoo.com/q?s=^N225. NIKKEI 225 is in JPY but i havent been able to fetch that information using yahoo
Thanks in advance!!
Jason – I guess you refer to this post:
so it would be better to put the question over there next time – so other reader could find it.
Any way, if you check: http://finance.yahoo.com/q?s=^N225 it will work and give you a page with data. Moreover, on historic data just use something like this format:
Hello Ido, I also have a question about your Yahoo hidden API page. Comments are closed on that page and so I am posting here.
I realize that it has been a long time since you posted that blog, but I was wondering about your SQL statements at the bottom of the post.
Were you implying supplying the SQL statements directly to Yahoo (in some sort of YQL REST request) or were you using some local DB that you had imported the downloaded CSV to?
No worries. The comments on posts are closed after 90 days to prevent spam.
As for your question. You can do both! If you wish to ‘test’ the API try something online with YQL console on the other hand, you can run this on your local database (or downloaded CSV).
Kind of interested in how your wife disagrees with 90% of your Yahoo Finance API post. ;p
Thanks for making it though.
Thanks and New Suggestion for your “Design” Page
First off, I wanted to say thank you for putting together the “Design” page on your site (https://greenido.wordpress.com/category/design/). There are some really useful links/resources on there.
Also, there’s a guide by SuperSummary called the “Free eBook Download Guide” (http://www.supersummary.com/ebook-download-guide/) that I thought your visitors would find helpful. Perhaps it would be worth adding it to your list of resources? Let me know what you think.
In any case, hopefully I’m not bothering you. Have a great day!
