Note: the event will be in the classroom in the corner, like last time. No food is allowed in the classroom, so make sure you've properly nourished your neurons beforehand!

Important: please bring your laptops to this event!

In this first part of the workshop series (which will probably unfold over several sessions), we will start by analyzing some data, looking for insights that will help us build a trading strategy in the subsequent workshops.

There will be 3 "tracks" to the workshop:

- The "R track": for non-programmers who want to learn simple predictive modelling and data analysis with existing tools.

- The "Tensorflow track": a track for programmers who want to learn deep learning and other machine learning techniques as applied to trading strategy development.

- a "pro" track, for advanced data scientists who prefer to focus on the research and strategy building on their own terms.

All 3 tracks will work towards the same common goal of discovering alpha insights in our data, but the techniques and instructions will differ.
