Build an Order Book Simulation with Kafka and Streamlit Workshop
In this workshop, we are going to build a program that simulates the process of trading.
Kafka is a framework for stream processing, message delivery and many other tasks. In usual Data science programs, real-time data/event processing is not a big focus but it is an important part of industry practice.
Streamlit is probably the most popular and fastest tool to turn a data science or machine learning project into a usable web app. Knowing it will significantly boost job hunters’ marketability.
In this workshop, we are going to build a program that simulates the process of trading. When you submit a buy or sell order of AAPL as many other people do, there are a lot of mechanisms going on behind the scenes. For example: How is the order of execution determined? How is a market order differentiated from a limited order? What about the notification of a successful trade? I will try to capture the most fundamental principles in stock trading microstructure and build a trading engine to simulate the process with the workshop participants. I promise fun and excitement.
