Beyond Excel: Building Excel-like Models in F#

2nd April 2015 in London at Skills Matter

This SkillsCast was filmed at Beyond Excel: Building Excel-like Models in F#

Many people still use Excel to build complex models, e.g. actuaries, quants, risk analysts etc. In this talk by F# in Finance expert Adam Mlocek, we take a closer look at Excel computational model, what makes it so attractive and what are its weaknesses. Adam will then present an F# library with simple API which allows us to build Excel-like models programmatically and without Excel limitations.

Using FCell 3.0 AddIn we can plug that library into Excel and replace Excel calculation engine. Adam will finish with a demo and build a few simple financial models using this new approach.
