Since quite a few individuals have asked me questions on programming (and related sub-topics), I thought it would be a good idea to write a small primer on the subject, namely: QuantFS prides itself on the quality of its members, and no doubt that every one of us knows our "theory", be it Econ, Finance, Math, or CompSci; however, if someone told you to implement it, where would you start? Well, maybe that's not fair...If you wanted to implement a regression model on CPI, M3, and Unemployment, that can easily be done in Excel, right? Well, what if you wanted a running regression on prices? Are you really going to ...
is a person who works in finance using numerical or quantitative techniques. Similar work is done in most other modern industries, but the work is not always called quantitative analysis. In the investment industry, people who perform quantitative analysis are frequently called quants. See List of quantitative analysts .

Nassim Taleb: clown of quantitative finance « Locklin on science
One of my fundamental realizations in life is that popular media in the 20th and 21st century is no better at conveying information than the “yellow journalism” of the Robber Baron era. A corollary to this is that most popular science “experts” are clowns. I realized this almost immediately in physics, as I had the good fortune to meet a couple of the charlatans I admired as a youth. It would be incredibly solipsistic of me to assume that this was only true in physics, but that is in fact what I assumed. Until I gained enough expertise in other fields to see through the impostures. The most popular ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
