Looking to connect with a Python developer. Struggling with the API.



I have managed to write a simple Python script that can login and execute trades. If there are any beginners out there who want me to share my code and a quick explanation please let me know. You can actually login, execute a trade and confirm that the trade has been executed with about 50 lines of code and without dependencies. So that could be useful for people who don't want to deal with the complexity of the projects on github.  

Unfortunately, I am struggling with the following: 

(1) How to delete working orders based on trade ID.

(2) How to close positions based on trade ID.

(3) How to stop myself getting rate-limited (meaning I often need to run the script several times just to get the IG servers to respond and  execute the trade). 

I am looking to connect with Python developers who have defeated these problems. This could involve me paying somebody for their expertise. It could involve working on problems together. Maybe there are some legendary people out there who are just happy to help.
