QFin will be hosting a two-week introduction to algorithmic trading workshop-series hosted by a member of our trading team. 

This workshop will equip attendees with all of the basic neccessary skills and resources to get started with building an algorithmic trading bot which will trade autonomously of human input. We will be using Python as our development language and working in VS code, so please have these programs pre-installed prior to the event. 

This two week workshop series will be split into two 1.5h sessions.

Week 1: Intro to Python for trading

- Week 1 of this event will serve to provide students with the neccessary Python background to understand week 2 of our course. In week 1, we will be assuming no prior working experience with Python so this workshop will be perfectly suitable for students with no background in coding or those looking for a quick refresher. 

Week 2: Intro to algorithmic trading development

- Week 2 of this event will introduce the packages our trading team uses for the development and execution of our algorithms. In this workshop we will also demonstrate how to develop and implement a trading strategy using these modules. This week of the course will assume some Python background- namely that introduced in week 1 of the course. 

This event is free for members of Quantitative Finance UWA. Memberships can be purchased prior to the event. Further information will be released closer to the workshop date.
