More and more, financial engineers and quants are turning to Python because it enables fast development and is uniquely suited to their tasks: data preparation, model run automation and connecting existing programs. If you’ve ever used Matlab or other mathematical applications and been frustrated, attend this webinar and learn how Python and packages like NumPy, SciPy, and matplotlib can help you achieve your goals faster.

Join Dr. Mike Müller, President of Python Academy, and Diane Mueller (no relation!), Director of Enterprise Product Management at ActiveState, and learn about:

  • Python’s capabilities for working with data and connecting existing programs
  • How NumPy and matplotlib provide functionality such as numerical calculations and plotting graphs similar to Matlab – yet are easier to use
  • Python’s capabilities for data processing and automating model runs
  • How Python’s features help quants with exceptionally readable syntax, automatic memory management, object-orientation, exception handling and lots of powerful libraries

Python is a programming language, but financial engineers and quants shouldn’t shy away! Register for this webinar today to see how you can be more productive with Python.
