About Workshop

Our Python for Finance 2-day Intensive Workshop is addressed to all who wish to learn programming in Python language straight away (Day 1) and begin coding a variety of financial models or ideas effortlessly (Day 2). The Workshop will cover the fundamentals of Python 3.5+, numerical aspects of coding, and over 100 individually crafted examples covering various applications from finance, risk management, data analysis, statistics, and machine learning techniques in finance and beyond.

Every participant will receive a free copy of Python for Quants. Volume I. e-book by Pawel Lachowicz (235 pages).

None-to-some prior programming experience is the baseline.




Pre-Requisites

Bring your own laptop and lot of enthusiasm to learn really a lot of new and amazing things! The Wi-Fi will be available during the course (FG-GUEST network; needs a local mobile phone number for an access).

Please have Python 3.5+ already installed. The recommended distribution is Anaconda Python (click download page to get the install file for your Windows or Linux or Mac OS X operating system). All course will be based on iPython Notebook style examples (Jupyter Notebook). It is a part of Anaconda distribution.




Instructor

Dr. Pawel Lachowicz (Sydney, Australia) received his PhD by applying novel techniques of signal processing in astrophysics from Polish Academy of Sciences in 2007. He worked at Temasek Laboratories and NUS in Singapore after that. He is a leading expert in data analysis covering financial markets, an educator, an author of books on finance, data processing, and applied programming. He also is a founder and writer at QuantAtRisk.com. He specializes in Python and Matlab programming for finance.

I will be in Singapore from May 8 (7pm) till May 17 (1.45am). You are more than welcome to catch-up with me anytime before or after the Workshop!!!
