Hey folks, I’m Greg Shikhman, and I am working at Octopart this summer as a software development intern. One big project that I’ve taken on is building a system for analyzing the historical pricing and stocking info on the 20 million electronic parts and counting that we have in our database. I’m trying to find interesting trends and factoids to pass on to the world and help people avoid backorders and save money buying the parts they need for their cool projects.
The first tool that we’re ready to show off to you all related to this effort is the historical pricing chart that is now available on all part detail pages with authorized distributors.
This is super cool.
