Demos or quant time series with quant analytics in Meetup ?

A query about the group:

Hello Group,

I am new to this group and I was wondering if there are any plans to start a series on quant techniques that can be used somewhere in the life cycle of quantitative analysis and the development of a trading strategy. Concepts such as PCAs, OLS etc.. it can be simple and more advanced (copulas and dynamic linear models for instance).

I’m not mathematician so I often struggle with the more advanced math concepts but I definitely want to learn more.

Please feel free to chime in and make suggestions. I look forward to networking and interacting with all of you.

My response:
I just finished my developing my  algo course but I am no mathematician either. Also, I plan to do one more tech infrastructure meetup soon. From there, it may focus on purely on algos and starts which there is little talk of. You can get tech stuff everywhere these days. I hope this helps.

NOTE I now post my TRADING ALERTS into my personal FACEBOOK ACCOUNT and TWITTER. Don't worry as I don't post stupid cat videos or what I eat!

Hi i there My name is Bryan Downing. I am part of a company called QuantLabs.Net This is specifically a company with a high profile blog about technology, trading, financial, investment, quant, etc. It posts things on how to do job interviews with large companies like Morgan Stanley, Bloomberg, Citibank, and IBM. It also posts different unique tips and tricks on Java, C++, or C programming. It posts about different techniques in learning about Matlab and building models or strategies. There is a lot here if you are into venturing into the financial world like quant or technical analysis. It also discusses the future generation of trading and programming Specialties: C++, Java, C#, Matlab, quant, models, strategies, technical analysis, linux, windows P.S. I have been known to be the worst typist. Do not be offended by it as I like to bang stuff out and put priorty of what I do over typing. Maybe one day I can get a full time copy editor to help out. Do note I prefer videos as they are much easier to produce so check out my many video at
