New calendar for quant trading online events

New calendar for quant trading online events

I just got an email notification from Meetup so see below. As you can imagine, this blows big time. As a way to comply, I have built a new Calendar for all my online events (webinars).

As you can imagine, there will be no push notifications anymore because of this notice. I would recommend everyone to join my Facebook Quant Programming group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/quantlabsnet/.

Just so you know,, I have tested various deliveries for these Webinars. I will be using Facebook LIVE to on Mondays at 6 PM EDT with my private Quant Elite/Analytics at 8PM EDT on Mondays aswell. Once again, the public webinars will take place at the above Facebook group.

NOTE; You will need to be pre approved into the Facebook group before any of these events.

Lastly, I will be maintaining the Meetup groups for face to face as required by Meetup.com
