After yet again explaining why I prefer DOTNET FSharp  over something like Scala, I dug into this further for more convincing myself

The ideal Quant Environment

Despite not being an expert here, Scala is a no go due to the botchery Oracle has decided to put the latest iterations of Java thru. The JVM is one horrid security breach I would never want to run!

I also addressed this is in a Skype session:

f# has a lot of momentum

i have used java for 8 years
[5:24:29 PM] Bryan Downing: it is old data garbage where java 8 is desparately trying to catch up to the .net innovations
[5:24:56 PM] Bryan Downing: sorry, just my POV but from a tech point, i will experiment with python is coming weeks but i am not holding my breath
[5:25:02 PM] Bryan Downing: scala is good believe it is good

As for the links above, F# is dead simple to set up with Visual Studio. I even tried it where I was impressed. When you deal with setting up something like Scala wihin Eclipse, I would rather burn myself and run around professing my love  for Anton Kreil’s high quality master class in learning how to be a better trader. Hack hack. the comments in the links above. Save yourself some time and headache.

Also, you will never please those Microsoft bashers out there, they are too stupid and ignorant to see how far Satya Nadella has brought this company out of the monopolistic and old man days of thinking. Oh well, you can never please them and what moron would base their entire trading decision because of some hatred of a tech company. That is real smart approach to trading in today’s fast changing world.

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!

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
