Data Plumbing with Python

Summary

[EuroPython 2011] Pavlos Christoforou - 21 June 2011 in "Track Ravioli"

Description

Point Nine provides operations outsourcing and support to large and complex financial institutions.

As part of our day to day responsibilities we are required to process our client's trading activity which generally involves receiving data in various formats and through various protocols, apply transformations, validations and enrichment processes and distribute the resulting data to various third parties, in short Data Plumbing.

The goal of this talk is to introduce the audience to the (vast) field of financial data processing which we believe presents a tremendous opportunity for python and it's community and provide a brief overview of Point Nine's deployment of Python as the main framework for all data plumbing activities.
