    I wanted to attend BATSIG on Thursday night but I was scheduled to present at the


    The presentation I gave may be of interest to some of you.

    Title: Use MADlib Logistic Regression to Predict SPY Tomorrow

    The presentation was a simple demo of me loading SPY data from into a Postgres table.

    Then I use Postgres windowing functions to create vectors and y-values.

    Next I feed the vectors and y-values to MADlib Logistic Regression.

    Great presentations and swag. Definitely will look forward to using Quantopian. The only thing I would ask for more is a bit more advanced strategy examples - I'm from a technical background and was already familiar with basics, and I think most attendees would be if they had motivated themselves to come.
