I’m very pleased to announce I’ve been accepted to speak at Wicked Good Ruby, Boston’s first Ruby conference! Some of you may have seen me speak about market analytics in the MMORPG Eve Online at the Cincinnati Ruby Brigade. I’m going to be presenting the same concepts, but further developed and with more refinement. Here’s the full abstract:
Ever wondered about market trading, analytics or algorithms but didn’t want to lose your shirt experimenting? EVE Online is a Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game (MMORPG) rich in data with a fully functional, player driven economy. Using some simple concepts and novel tools you can get access to this data and discover interesting things. This talk will introduce you to market analytics and the cruel world of EVE Online.
