    Hey guys,

    I'm sure we have some people in IT here. Does anyone know some good books using Python for finance? I'm thinking of ordering the O'Reilly book but wanted to get an opinion on it first. Specifically, I'm looking to find a book walking through Monte Carlo analysis using python. I've also found a few libraries (pyMC looks best so far) to get started.

    Any kind of resources would help!

    I honestly like Udemy better for crash courses as it has code-alongs, lots of resources, and you can get any course for around $10

    Don't ever buy a course full price!

    Wait for discounts or use incognito browser so the site doesn't recognize your IP and price discriminate (also useful for airplane tickets) then add to cart and finalize, etc.

    Here is a course created by a great instructor, while it doesn't have monte carlo its a good starting point and overview
    Also look into Quantopian (covered in the course), it's an open-source python based algorithmic trading community.
