Conversations: Learning Python within CloudQuant

What was your experience like learning Python within CloudQuant?

We asked our portfolio managers and product management teammates who code in Python to explain their starting experiences in programming with Python with CloudQuant. We wanted to share with everyone what encouraged them to keep learning throughout the years.

Everyone here codes as part of their job. This includes the CEO all the way down to the interns. We rely on our Backtesting Engine to ensure that trading algorithms work well before committing money to the automated trading strategies. But we also use JupyterLab in our daily work. We generate our reports, monitor our systems, and do all sorts of tasks in Python. Python has overtaken the spreadsheet in CloudQuant.

The teammates featured in this video are:

  • Morgan Slade- CEO
  • Tayloe Draughon- Senior Product Manager
  • James Chang- Quantitative Portfolio Manager
  • Rob Ferguson- Quantitative Equity Portfolio Manager
  • Simon Zhang- Quantitative Analyst

Watch this video to gain insight as to what got our amazing coders to where they are.
