After receiving a great response to our newFinancialPython User Group in London, were pleased to announce that we’re also going to be launching an informal Financial Python User Group in New York City.
The use of Python, NumPy, and SciPy amongst quantitative analysts has grown steadily over the past several years. Throughout the financial industry, Python tools have played a powerful role in cutting-edge trading and visualization systems. We’ve been working with a number of New York-based quants, traders, and other financial professionals for some time now, so the city seems an appropriate location for our first US Financial Python User Group.
Beginning in December 2009, Enthought will organize a monthly or bi-monthly event where people can meet and discuss the use of Python in the financial sector. Topics will range from new tools and techniques to best practices.
