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


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 within 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.


Anyhooo..read the comments in the link below.. Save yourself some time and headache.

About caustic

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 youtube.com/quantlabs
