Congratulations to Kevin Davey @kevinkdog on his new book:

https://www.amazon.com/Building-Algorithmic-Trading-Systems-Website/dp/1118778987/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1403723158&sr=8-1-fkmr0&keywords=Building+Algorithmic+Trading+Systems+w%2FKevin+Davey



You guys can use this thread to discuss the book. I also highly recommend watching the webinars on futures.io (formerly BMT) from Kevin Davey, there are several and they are all fantastic.

I've also invited Kevin back for a new webinar in the coming weeks, and to give away several of his new books (with autographs). Look for a separate thread for that event later.

Due to my background and my style of trading i own all relevant book's about that topic. I'm very glad that our friend Kevin has made a lot of efforts to make that book happen. I'm not an author myself but i know from other friends that it is an really huge task and often it turns into a nightmare.

Thanks Kevin i will buy one (unseen) if available here in Germany!

The book is a good read and very honest. If you think about buying a signal anywhere, read the book first and then think again. Coming up with a signal you can trade is hard work and not a quick road to riches.
I can definitely recommend it and even advanced system developers might be able to pick up a thing or two. Of course there is only so much you can put into a book, but @kevinkdog does a great job going over every aspect of his development process.

I have wondered in the past as to why Kevin is not considered a vendor? Can anyone help me understand the line between being considered a vendor and not one on the forums?

Discussed multiple times on futures.io (formerly BMT). There is a bug where Market Wizards do not show their vendor badge. I am not going to fix this bug. See futures.io (formerly BMT) 5.0 thread.
