Following this post (Community - What about a BacktraderCon in Paris ?) and some background conversations a 1st BacktraderCon will be held this upcoming weekend. The dates:
- 3rd and 4th of June (Saturday and Sunday)
The Con will just be a small group of backtraders, so whether it finally happens to be a Con(ference) or it turns out to be just a Get/Hack Together is for sure open. But all things in life start small before becoming something else.
The BacktraderCon 2018 may never see the lgiht, but it will already be good enough to have been able to at least say that a BacktraderCon ever happened.

@backtrader Sounds awesome but unfortunately for me, I am on the other side of the world.
Just wanted to give you a gauge of the interest. I don't expect locations to change. Good luck with it.
One never knows if the next one may take place far away from the 1st. Hopefully we'll have something to share after two days.
The event is over ...
- We watched the Champions League Final
- We ate Bavarian food
and we even ...
- Did some backtrading
A repository with the snippets:
There you will also find a PDF with the notes that were taking during the event (including the pictures)
And of course ... the best picture ever
Many thanks @backtrader for those 2 amazing and very inspirating days. So much fun discovering genuine bavarian food, watching the Champion League Final and of course some hacking on BT.
BT is great and the man behind is greater !
Looking forward BackTraderCon 2018 ;)
Wow 1 year already and so many good souvernirs of our BacktraderCon with DRo !!! Time is flying...
Nice event. Things have changed a lot since then, but at least backtrader (except for the small bugs) has proven to be good (imho)
