 Join WiCS and *Quantopian* for a Boston-wide algorithmic trading meetup *April
17th *in
Ticknor Lounge and Fong Auditorium.

*5:00 - 5:30  pm*, Mingle with individuals from various *financial tech
startups* in the Boston area
*5:30 - 6:30 pm*, Tech talk by Quantopian, Boston-based financial tech
startup, on the technology behind their algorithm investing platform

*We'll hear from Thomas Weicki, a Quantitative Researcher at Quantopian, on
Zipline, an open-source streaming-based financial simulator which enables
realistic backtesting of algorithmic trading strategies. **We'll see how
statistical Python libraries like scikit-learn can easily be incorporated
with Zipline to build state of the art trading algorithms.*

All genders welcome, and pizza will be served!
