LIVE STREAM of building Python for quant trading in Ubuntu Linux

This was utter torture to complete but did it thanks to all my visitors during this live stream. Forward to about 45 minutes before I actually start building everything is Python.

I tried using the Quant Start book: https://www.quantstart.com/successful-algorithmic-trading-ebook

All the successful commands to build the major Python packages were using ‘apt-get install…’ instead of building from source which failed numerous times. Thanks to all the viewers assisting!

 

(More links from these sources the bottom)

sudo apt-get install python-scipy

ctrl &+ so you can expand Linux

sudo apt-get install python-pandas

apt-get install python-statsmodels python-pandas

import statsmodels

sudo apt-get install python-sklearn

sudo apt-get install python-matplotlib
sudo apt-get install ipython-notebook

sudo apt-get install libqt4-core libqt4-gui libqt4-dev

sudo apt-get install libzmq-dev

sudo apt-get install python-pygments

sudo apt-get install python-qtconsole
sudo apt-get install ipython-qtconsole

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
