About this event

I would like to share an event from the friends of the Google Developer Student Club:
Please check the full description on GDSC: Link

The world of algorithmic trading constantly tests even the brightest developers by putting their code under the pressure of financial markets. At Optiver, leading global market maker, engineering teams tackle this complex challenge on a daily basis.

In this event, to give students a glimpse into the fascinating coding problems presented by algorithmic trading at scale, we are hosting a Coding Challenge. Using your team's knowledge of Python, you'll develop a trading algorithm and test its success on Optibook: Optiver's real-time proprietary simulated exchange.

Sign up to push your skills to their limits while competing to win an iPhone! Moreover, the first 10 teams will receive amazing Optiver goodies 🎉

Food and drinks will be provided during the event 🍕🍸

When registering, please specify whether you are already part of a team (max 3 people, each one registered individually) or it is fine to be matched with other participants there.
