Fixing Python Memory Leaks

A few of our power users reported that long-running backtests would sometimes run out of memory. These power-users are the people who often find new trading strategies and so we wanted to work with them to improve the performance of our backtesting tools. Over the past couple of weeks, our senior engineer found that the problem wasn’t in our code, but in one of the popular Python libraries that we use.
We found the problem in numpy and numba.

Conversations: Learning Python within CloudQuant

What was your experience like learning Python within CloudQuant?
We asked our portfolio managers and product management teammates who code in Python to explain their starting experiences in programming with Python with CloudQuant. We wanted to share with everyone what encouraged them to keep learning throughout the years.
Everyone here codes as part of their job. This includes the CEO all the way down to the interns. We rely on our Backtesting Engine to ensure that trading algorithms work well before committing money to the automated trading strategies. But we also use JupyterLab in our daily work. We generate our reports, monitor our systems, and do all sorts of tasks in Python. Python has overtaken the spreadsheet in CloudQuant.
