Algorithmic Trading with Quantopian

I recently started researching algorithmic trading and got interested in the Quantopian platform, which includes a full development research, learning and development environment.

I have been using the platform for market research with the following tools:

1. Lectures & Tutorials – Lessons are presented with iPython notebooks

2. Extensive Data API’s – Utilized for backtesting

3. Development Environment – Develop and test algorithms

It is an impressive platform, and one that I highly recommend!

Please check back for more updates as I post more news on my progress.

Node.js on Heroku: Tutorial & Template

For anyone looking to get up and running on Node.js, I recommend the Heroku tutorial which provides a quick guide on deployment and a good template for future use.

Granted, it does take some basic programming knowledge to get all the steps but otherwise, the tutorial is easy to complete. I especially enjoy the minimalist template with intuitive defaults and great styling out of the box.

Great job, Heroku and please keep up the good work!
