A few weeks ago we held an algorithmic trading meetup in Boston where Wes McKinney spoke to a jam-packed room of quants eager to learn more about pandas, Python and algorithmic trading. For those of you who aren’t familiar with python star Wes McKinney, he is the co-founder of Lambda Foundry, creator of pandas, author of “Python for Data Analysis,” and our newest advisor.
At the meet up Wes spoke for an hour about his career, the benefits of using pandas for algorithmic trading and performed several live demonstrations. It was a great opportunity to see a master developer in action, and we’re posting a video of his presentation here as a resource:

Our goal for these events is to speak on topics that are both interesting and educational to the quant community, so we welcome any suggestions on what you would like to see covered in the future!
