£1900 + VAT. Early bird and group discounts available.



Read our interview with Luigi Ballabio about the origins of QuantLib, the plans for the future and a run-down on what to expect from this course.

"Luigi is a great instructor, very helpful and the most authoritative voice on the subject"

"The exercises were very good!"

"Thank you Luigi, it was a great course!"

"Contact with the instructor was excellent!"

The goal of this three-day intensive hands-on course is to take a bird-eye look at the design of the QuantLib library as well as its rationale, to examine its implementation, and thus to learn how one's own code can be fitted on top of QuantLib to reuse and benefit from provided functionality. The course will focus on QuantLib proper, i.e., on the C++ library and won't cover extensions such as the Excel addin.

This is a practical intensive course for financial market participants.
