Our Motivation


At Man AHL, we rely on the flourishing Python ecosystem. Over the years, Man AHL developers have contributed to many projects (check out github.com/manahl). We also sponsor the PyData and Machine Learning meet-ups in London. Through our Hackathon, we hope to grow the community surrounding these open source projects, contribute to new ideas, and give something back.
