CFA Society Belgium organized a series of training workshops in Python Programing in Finance in February. Overwhelming registrations received from members with full capacity which raised interest in the community.
"Well I already rolled up my sleeves and I'm currently busy studying Python. In addition due to the course I got to hear about a Postgraduate course on data analytics at KU Leuven which I applied to and got accepted already. It will start in October. I think this tells much about how I enjoyed the course." shared by one of our member participants, Salma Haidar, CFA.
For those of you who were not able to join us, don't worry - stay tuned for our update as we are looking to organize a second round of workshops later the year where waitlisted members will be prioritized to register for this event.
