Thien Nguyen, a software developer at Optiver, will be presenting on how Optiver uses Amazon Web Services to scale their data experiments and automate idea generation, testing and acceptance.

Here are more details:
"At Optiver, we’re faced with a daily challenge– we want to have the freedom to experiment as much as possible, but we don’t want to risk having an unpredictable impact on the markets. To let the innovation happen, we built a simulation framework to play our models over large quantities of historical data. We also made the simulation framework really easy to use so that anyone with basic python knowledge could spin up an experiment. Unfortunately, lots of users x lots of data required computing power that we couldn’t hold in our offices in Sydney. To answer this we turned to Amazon Web Services."

See you there, and remember to bring your friends!
