Programming is an increasingly important skill, for a variety of reasons:
New Career It is a gateway to jobs in Data Science and Algorithmic Trading
Existing Work / Studies It can give you an edge to develop stronger analysis and ideas
Entrepreneurship It provides a means to be self-sufficient through your own ventures and apps
You don’t have to be a computer scientist to build and market your own programs. One of the best programmers I met studied Medieval History at university but was exceptional because of her own consistent practice.
So I am confident anyone can learn to program, and I would love to help you;
I have 4 years of experience in training professionals, postgraduates and undergraduates through The Profs, Private University tutors (www.theprofs.co.uk). I won their “Top Tutor” award in 2016.
I have also consulted for traders and start-ups and built programs in C++, Python, Java, Matlab and R to this end.
Testimonials are available here. Of particular relevance are: 1. C++ (MQL4): The video testimonial from Mark Randall, Project Manager in Investment Banking. Available here. 2. Python: The written testimonial from the Private Equity Advisor (second testimonial in the Quantitative Consulting section).
One-Day Courses and Class Dates
I run 2 courses: one for Python and one for C++. Python is easier to learn and has more applicability in Data Analysis and prototyping. C++ is more powerful so is used for algorithmic trading and professional application development in banks.
Introduction to Python and Data Science Saturday November 3rd
Price: £300 Saturday November 17th
Introduction to MQL4 and Algorithmic Trading Saturday November 10th
Price: £400 Saturday November 24th
Main class: Saturday afternoon in Central London (venue tbc), from 2pm to 5pm
Small class size (around 4 people) for more individual attention
You will gain:
An introduction to programming with hands-on exercises which you will solve yourself (with help if you need it)
An understanding of how to structure your code to make it more readable and easier to maintain
Resources for learning further by yourself and access to me and/or a forum for asking questions
A practice assignment for you to work on in your own time, with a follow-up one-to-one session to go through it
I also offer one-to-one training in C++, Python, Matlab and Java.
If you would prefer the above one-day courses in Matlab, Java, or other technical areas, for groups, I can create a training course.
