Quantopian is Coming to India in September 2018

Quantopian will hold workshops and free meetups from September 1st - September 16th in Bangalore, New Delhi, and Mumbai. We hope you will come out and join us.

Dr. Tom Starke, founder of AAA Quants and Quantopian lecturer, will lead both introductory and advanced-level quantitative finance workshops, focusing on the core principles of rigorous statistical research and an overview of the entire quantitative factor workflow, including: evaluating a factor, comparing factors, combining factors into a strategy, and evaluating the performance of factor strategies.

Tickets for the workshops are available now. Meetups are free to attend and provide another opportunity to connect and network with quants in your community.

It would be great if we can get data for back-testing strategies on Indian stocks as well before this workshop is conducted. Still, it will be a great platform for all the algo-trading enthusiasts.

Cheers!

Can you clarify whether India dataset and strategies/examples be discussed on these workshops?

Dataset available for NSE??

Quantopian only provides US Equity and Futures Data.
You can use Quantopian Zipline for Backtesting and Analyzing your custom Datasets.

Hi Harkishan,
Good news - Quantopian is no longer exclusively US. We currently provide the ability to research equities in a Notebook using data from 26 countries (as of January, 2019), including India. See our announcement post for more details on how to research with global equities data.

Thanks
Josh
