Why not Python or Pandas like AQR capital management does?  Why not Cassandra NOSQL database like BlueMountain Capital does?

Questions about yesterday from a newsletter subscriber:

Why not Python/Pandas like AQR does? See quote by Roni Israelov here: http://pandas.pydata.org/

Or Cassandra like BlueMountain Capital does?
These firms spend millions trying to solve the same problems as you do. There is probably value in the approaches they recommend.
This was from earlier today on:
Oh me oh my so programming languages for automated trading or quant login details for Dec 8 at 7 PM EST
First. Blue Mountatin also focuses on F#:

As for Cassandra, this is a toss up betweeen MongoDB and Reddit. The powers to be easily swing towards MongoDB but still prefer a home grown in memory database solution.
As for Pandas Python and Pypy, I want to use it but will be around in 5 years? Will my scripts stil;l be compatible? Pypy does not give me any confidence but this does not mean a quick death to Python. Believe me, its popular and it has my attention. The question is: How do I deploy it with all these other options?
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!

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
