Market Analytics in EVE with Ruby
by Doug Alcorn
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.
I've given this talk improv at our local Cincinnati.rb and it went over well. It's posted on http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kPHHfQkKIqg. There's also a brief thread on http://www.reddit.com/r/evetrading/comments/1amvdp/commodity_market_analysis_with_ruby/ discussing it.
