Topic: Beginners: Use the Stock Market to Learn Python

Speaker: Dan Bikle

This presentation introduces Python to Students. We learn a little about
the topics listed below:

   - Plain Python
   - NumPy
   - Pandas
   - scikit-learn
   - matplot lib
   - Heroku

We build a simple application which completes these tasks once a day:

   - Acquire Stock Market Prices
   - Create Features from Prices
   - Visualize Features
   - Train Logistic Regression Model (1987-2014)
   - Predict 2015 and 2016
   - Visualize Accuracy and Effectiveness of Predictions
   - Serve the Visualizations from Heroku.com

The software behind this application is served from github:

This presentation is served from www.syntax.us:
