Building your own sports trading bot

In this workshop participants will get a glimpse into the world of automated sports trading. The workshop will start out with an introduction into the realm of betting exchanges, trading bots and the strategies that can be employed to successfully trade sports. After the introduction we will move into a more “hands on” session where everyone will get API access to the Smarkets betting exchange and a skeleton of a trading bot which can then be extended with the ultimate goal of creating your first sports trading bot!

The requirements for this workshop will be basic knowledge of Python and RESTful APIs. Basic knowledge of statistics would also be helpful but is not essential. Last but not least: Do bring your laptops!
