Hi, I’m Jason 👋
When I was 18 I made two decisions that changed my life: I learned how to code and traded my first stock.
The code was PHP – and it was awful. The stock was MSFT – and I lost money. But I was hooked. For the next 10 years, I followed the conventional wisdom and double majored in finance and economics and got a master’s degree in quant finance.
But it wasn’t enough. So I taught myself Python and used it to trade stocks, futures and options, become a risk quant, and build quant engineering teams.
20 years after that first line of code, I build data systems at AWS and create digital products for beginners getting started with Python for quant finance.
I started PyQuant News in 2015 to share what I was learning about Python and quant finance.
In October 2022 I launched Getting Started With Python for Quant Finance and have taught 700+ the frameworks I’ve learned over 20 years of trial and error.
And I’m sharing them with you now!
