Popularity of the Board Game Night last week exceeded our expectations (and
the number of seats), so we are happy to announce a re-run this Saturday!
No worries about the lack of space - we introduced a booking system to make
sure you do not appear at the spot in vain.
What’s more, Jane Street is hosting a tech talk with quantitative
researcher Laurent Mazare, so be sure to register if it is a domain you may
be interested in. Read to the end to learn about final year student/recent
graduate opportunities provided by our sponsor TPP.
See you soon,

possible to have 25 spaces at one time, so there are different types of
tickets available. Registration is necessary to participate in the meeting:

is driven by our people.
At Jane Street, we rely on OCaml to build industrial strength systems that
handle terabytes of information per day. However in the last few years
Python has proven to be a tool of choice for data analysis. In this talk we
present how we expose a wide variety of OCaml libraries and services so
that they can be accessed from Python giving us the best of both worlds.
End users can use Python notebooks and their favorite libraries to
manipulate huge datasets, and OCaml is used behind the hood for the heavy
