QuantEcon will be running a half-day workshop in computational economics at UNSW on August 11, 2017. The workshop will provide a quick start introduction to programming in Python and Julia for economists.
Our target audience is current PhD students who are curious about Python and Julia, and how they might be useful for research in quantitative economics. Faculty are also welcome to attend. Content will be loosely based on the material in Lectures in Quantitative Economics.
Time: August 11, 1pm - 5pm
Location: K-G6-G15 – Blockhouse G15, UNSW
