Time Progressions with string and DateTime
Julian started us off by showing some of the Forex data that he retrieves as a CSV file. The data shows trades at a one minute resolution. He summarizes the data in multiple groupings: by hour, by day, etc.
He does much of the processing with strings and epoch seconds. Other
processing uses the
DateTime module. Each grouping results
in data that is summarized as an set of open, high, low, and close prices.
Many people had questions, that Julian fielded pretty easily.
Julian has made the code snippets he displayed available for download.
Next, Nicolas attempted to summarize all that he saw during this year's YAPC::EU. The impression was a whirlwind tour of many different modules and topics.
Nicolas's slides are also available.
We had 11 people attending this month. As always, we'd like to thank cPanel, Inc. for providing the meeting space and food for the group.
