Quantopian will host a one day workshop on Sunday, April 7th called ‘Alpha Generation and Risk Management in Quantitative Trading’. In this workshop, we will cover a range of topics including a broad overview of the quant workflow, methods of generating and evaluating alpha factors from idea generation to risk management. We will take care to highlight some of the more common pitfalls in algorithmic research and trading. The workshop runs from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM.

Lunch will be provided. We suggest that attendees have some programming  knowledge. Workshop participants are required to bring their own laptops. You can purchase your ticket to the Saturday Conference as well as the Sunday Workshop here.
