SyPy: Sydney Python Users group meetup

Where does python fit in a world where microseconds count?
I will talk a little bit about electronic trading, history and  
philosophy. Then onto the anatomy of an algorithmic trade shop with  
perhaps a live demo. Python finds use in rapid prototyping (of  
course), GUI and forensics/data analysis.

About the speaker(s):
Simon Burton has been working in the US finance industry for about  
five years, his specialty is high frequency trading. Prior to that he  
worked in machine learning at an australian research lab.
He has a long commute.
