From speaking with everyone, quite a few guys seem to be coming from a non-programmer background and aiming to learn Python to start being able to build some bots. If you're learning Python at the moment, we'll use this thread to connect you guys together so that you can bounce questions off each other and off anyone else that can give some advice.

Picking up Python's going to be a lot easier for you guys if it's done semi-collaboratively, so use this thread to start reaching out to other guys learning and I'll try to add some good learning resources here as well. * cough * project euler

Cheers Guys

Hey everyone, I'm Saf. I do econs, stats and math and currently in uni.
Don't know much programming apart from really procedural R that I use for stats. Been trying to learn Python on Solo Learn, a nice place to get started as they split it into modules each with a comments section where everyone tries to help out anyone that's confused as well. I also help my university's trading and investments society where I got introduced to Quantopian from the people in the trading team.
Don't know if any of you guys use those resources?
Anyway, real cool to meet everyone and excited to help each other out. Definitely agree that doing this semi-collaboratively will be more meaningful.

a word of advice on pandas, numpy and other data manipulation frameworks: if you're just starting with Python, I would recommend avoiding the frameworks and writing your loops from scratch. Do it once, then learn the frameworks and never do it again. This way you'll have a better appreciation of what they do for you
