Join us Wednesday, March 31st at 11am EDT (4pm BST) via Zoom for our next FINOS Open Source in Fintech Meetup.
Guest Speaker: Andrew Stein of J.P. Morgan Chase, will be presenting on "How to Build an Order Book Simulation with Perspective".
Join for Andrew's Presentation: How to Build an Order Book Simulation with Perspective - March 31st, 2021
Learn how to build a real-time Order Book Dashboard from a simple Python market simulation using Perspective. Participants will learn how to use Perspective’s JupyterLab integration to first interactively develop, test and visualize a simple market model in a Jupyter Notebook; then, using that same model, we’ll develop a production-caliber, high-performance streaming server and interactive web client with Perspective and Apache Arrow.
background for the finos perspective project
Perspective is an interactive visualization component for large, real-time datasets. Originally developed for J.P. Morgan's trading business, Perspective makes it simple to build real-time & user configurable analytics entirely in the browser, or in concert with Python and/or Jupyterlab. Use it to create reports, dashboards, notebooks and applications, with static data or streaming updates via Apache Arrow. As a library, Perspective provides both:
- A fast, memory efficient streaming query engine, written in C++ and compiled for both WebAssembly and Python, with read/write/stream/virtual support for Apache Arrow.
- A framework-agnostic User Interface Custom Element and Jupyterlab Widget, via WebWorker (WebAssembly) or virtually via WebSocket (Python/Node), and a suite of Datagrid and D3FC Chart plugins.
