Hi, Dan.

Love your concept and very excited about start-ups like Quantopian.

The thing I didnít understand is why you went down the proprietary language route. Why didnít you guys run with a C#, Java or other implementation? The proprietary language route will really reduce your addressable market.



I wouldn't say it is that proprietary. They release the core as open source ( search for zipline on github ).

And python ( + pandas ) is becoming popular in certain parts.

Math. A gateway drug to reality.
