The Coding for Risk Management seminars get you started in Excel, VBA, R, Python, SQL, and GitHub. The first step in all of these languages is a big step; after taking it here, you will be able to take next steps on your own. These seminars are also a great opportunity to discover how much you like programming. The examples are all related to finance and risk management. In all of the languages we price stocks, bonds, and options.
