6th Python for Quant Finance Meetup

Dear Python Quants,

I am happy to announce our 6th Python for Quant Finance meetup. Thanks to Thomson Reuters for hosting us again -- we always enjoy it!

Expect, among others, this time the following topics:

Python & MongoDB at AHL (Garry Collier): learn how AHL uses Python & MondoDB to e.g. manage TBs of tick data

• Cufflinks (Jorge Santos): from pandas DataFrame to interactive D3.js plot with a single method call

Eikon API (Jorge Santos): the brand new Thomson Reuters Python-based Data API

DIY corner (Yves Hilpisch):  multiple Jupyter Notebook servers within Docker containers; high performance time series management and data analytics (tstables, bcolz, blaze)

I will also try to bring a few copies of my "Python for Finance" (O'Reilly) book.

Best,

Yves

    The talks were great; a big thank you to all the speakers! Are the IPython notebooks used in the talks available online?

    Thanks for the interesting talks - shame I won't be able to afford an Eikon license anytime soon ;)

    Dear Python Quants,

    Good news before the weekend. We were able to get a larger room for Monday night so that we can now fit all that have RSVPed into that room.

    Do not miss the event with very interesting talks. Looking forward seeing you.

    Best,

    Yves

    Dear Python Quants,

    I have updated the program for our 6th Meetup on Monday. I am happy that Gary Collier (co-CTO of AHL) will present about Python & MongoDB usage at AHL.

    This event is heavily oversubscribed -- please make sure to update your RSVPs as soon as you know that you can't make it (and not 1h before the event starts). We will this time track attendance because we always have people who would really like to attend but can't due to others having a RSVP and not showing up.

    Thanks again to Thomson Reuters for hosting us on Monday.

    Best,

    Yves
