Why programmers thinks that python is for noobs?

Here are the highlights to this exact question. I agree especially when you consider Lua as described below.

t pretty much has to, in order for Python to even work for machine learning. Python is far too slow of a language to use to process the sometimes billions of records involved in teaching deep learning algorithms. The reason it works at all is that it has libraries like NumPy that are written in C or C++ that do the computational heavy lifting….

I spent more than a decade using C++ to write games and game engines. I kept running into the limitations of C++ in my ability to be agile in the creation of games, or of game logic. I could use C++ for everything, but it takes longer than it should to do some things.

So when I discovered the dynamic language Lua, and how easy it was to embed, I became a huge dynamic language advocate. So much so that my game engines became more and more centered around Lua and less around C++. My command line scripts also transitioned to Ruby at about the same time.

I did this last night

Going LIVE at 8PM EDT tonight for Latest opportunity for crypto automated trading

This was about the latest opportunity that could be found. It seems many of the positions put on always potentially goes negative lately. I am hoping to expand into other asset classes in coming weeks. This includes forex and CFD using Oanda.

Back to Python

Just remember I also have this course for those who want to learn about jumpstarting to build a primitive automated trading system.

5 Free R Programming Courses for Data Scientists and machine learning Programmers

I am quite surprised R is being promoted as a language ofr machine learning and data research. According to the latest Tiobe Programming Language Index, R is placed at 15 while other popular programming languages are in the top 10. The most notable is MATLAB where you would think it would wither to die. MATLAB has a lot of relevance still but this free R course might be of interested to you.

Here are some of the article highlights:

R burst into the scene with its powerful support for stats (linear and nonlinear modeling, classical statistical tests, time-series analysis, classification, clustering, …) and graphical techniques, but in recent year, it has gained a lot of popularity among Data Scientist and Data minors.

Along with Python, R is the second most popular language to learn the new world of Data Science, Machine Learning, Deep Learning, and Artificial intelligence.

Great news again — good old Sholom regularly sends out some dandy content for the quant community.

 

This infographic is one you should take a good look at. The title says it all: “Latency Numbers Every Programmer Should Know”:

 

Check out the infographic here

 

Now let’s move onto something else I think you’ll also find quite interesting …

 

Benefits with technical hints of

average true range script for

max forex trading alpha

 

As you know, I’m switching over to trading signals via reports and charts within a few months. And over the last week I’ve worked hard on a Python script that lets you:

 

1. Automatically download over 50 combined forex trading pairs from IQFeed

 

2. Calculate statistical info with normal distribution histograms

 

3. Generate raw data with average true range

 

4. Automatically rank volatility by day, month, and year

 

5. Maximize your Alpha generation by quickly understanding which Forex pair is most volatile

 

Check out this video to see the results so far:

 

The video’s right here

 

This is one of the many benefits my automated trading reports will give back to traders who take their Forex trading seriously.

 

No human can do this type of processing. But this script processes everything within one hour. And this is just the first of many reports which will be part of this new service.

 

Plus, I need to remind you that …

 

We’re coming down to the last day of the semi annual bonus offering.

 

Right now you can get 12 months free (a $1,200 value) for signing up for 6 months. Yes, that’s a 3-for-1 offer!

 

But this is the last day it’s available. After today, that 12 month bonus gets cut to 6 months.

 

So go ahead and maximize your bonus months right now.

You’ve got everything to gain from it too!

 

Here are the many benefits you’ll sacrifice if you miss out. Access to my QuantLabs.net ELITE service includes:

 

1. Source code, video walkthroughs, and database analysis with enhanced course structure.

 

2. All Math analysis for all your quant analysis using Khan Academy.

 

3. Tips on stock screening technology.

 

4. Top vendor source code demos of top providers with Interactive Brokers and IQFeed. (Windows and Linux versions included)

 

5. Complete MATLAB source code to my AK-47 trading system for amazing government source reconnaissance. This little gem lets you see hot market sectors months ahead of the dumb money. And it’s also great at finding pairs in the markets to trade.

 

6. Complete analysis from the best source I know for both futures and options trading

 

7. Exclusive weekly Meetup video playbacks not accessible by the public.

 

There are many more benefits of our QUANT ELITE MEMBERSHIP, which is why I’ve compiled resources for you to understand what’s on offer:

 

1. A FAQ knowledgebase covering 129 topics! Click here!

 

2. A detailed course topic listing with videos. For more, just click here.

 

3. And a final list of MAJOR benefits is available right here

 

I’m offering you continued pricing with all the above benefits with more to come! This includes:

 

1. C++ and soon Python exploration for true High Frequency Trading on Linux!

 

2. Redis NOSQL implementation — the world’s fastest database.

 

3. Many, many algos for real world algorithmic trading using automation.

 

Yes — I’m bringing it all together in the coming months. And this means what you’re getting today (18 total months for the price of 6 months) the most affordable pricing out there.

How 9 year olds are Python programmers

After last nite’s Meetup, I feel I must show that 9 year olds are recommended to learn this programming language. If they can teach a young kid, why are you not learning it to advanced you knowledge in automated/algo trading? This articles also lists out the reasons why Python is selected.

True: The best traders are the ones that are programmers and driven to be a damn good one!

Despite what Mr WIlmot thinks (again he started the whole thing), this is the reality, Quants are 90% programming. End of story which means many fail. Oh well. Back to the casino you go.

As for the subject, the truth speaks. The cave men days of charting traders are over within a few years. You better be gal or boy genius on the computer to work on Wall St. The new expectation has been raised. Deal?

There is no right way to get into machine learning. We all learn slightly different ways and have different objectives of what we want to do with or for machine learning. A common goal is to get productive with machine learning quickly. If that is your goal than this post highlights five common mistakes programmers make on the path to quickly being productive machine learning practitioners.
