I recently started working on the QC platform as it's the only truly open and flexible algo platform that I'm aware of that supports options back testing and live trading, which opens the door to the wonderful world of options algos at a low entry cost. This platform and community interaction that Jared and his team have made available is really awesome - definitely democritising finance and much appreciated :) I'm a software engineer with wide ranging experience in many languages and domains and also an experienced equities, futures, forex and options trader.
