The Quantopian Lecture Series: Notebooks, Backtests, and Video Lectures. All in One Spot.

Notebooks, backtests, and video lectures. All in one spot:

We have launched a free quantitative finance education curriculum for our community. We have held a series of lectures via meetups and webinars that cover the concepts of the curriculum and demonstrate how to use our platform and tools to write a good algorithm. We have also released cloneable notebooks and algorithms for each topic covered. As promised, we have developed a home to house this curriculum. Please check out our new Lectures page and learn more about:

  • Linear Regression
  • Spearman Rank Correlation
  • Pairs Trading
  • Beta Hedging

This curriculum is being developed in concert with our academic program, in which we're working with professors from MIT Sloan, Stanford, and Harvard. The education material we're generating is being vetted by professors as they use our platform to teach their classes, so you can expect to get the same materials that are in use at top schools.
