    Hi Michael - the Zipline readme (­) has a link to the Zipline Google group,­. They can help you out.

      Someday we might make a paid-support-for-zipline­ offering, but that's pretty far in the future. We're more focused on live trading and making it easier to be a quant.

      FIX connectivity and the like are probably going to be added by the global community, as people see the need for it. It won't require paid support to make that happen.

    Is there any preferred way to ask question on zipline? I had some questions on running the library when I cannot create dataframes with all my data

    Much better than the last one, which was over-crowded. However, the demo was pretty thin. I would have liked to have seen entire pandas DataFrames/Panels/Series unfolded unto Excel sheets, since then you'd be leveraging the best parts of both platforms -- the smart data management and analytics in python and the open, transparent display and visualization in Excel.

    Very nice demo. I'd like to see more complex examples, but I think the exercise is left for us.

    I'm looking forward to trying out DataNitro and spending a little more time in Quantopian,
