ActiveState's Diane Mueller, Director, Enterprise Product Management & Trent Mick, Senior Python Developer and Komodo Lead will be presenting Python & Finance: US Government Mandates, Financial Modeling and Other Snakes in the Grass, a talk based on a recent US SEC proposal. The proposal addresses the lack of transparency of asset-backed securities by adding disclosure requirements to include Python financial models and reflects a need for Open Tools to work with Open Data to ensure transparency in Government. The session will discuss why Python is a good fit for the SEC’s proposal & the Open Source challenges ahead for the financial ecosystem. Join Diane and Trent on Thursday, July 22nd at 2:30PM:

If you can't make it to our talk, swing by our booth (#423)--we'd love to hear what you think of the SEC proposal for Python, or hear about how you're using dynamic languages in your projects!
