What is a BOTCAMP cohort?

A 5-week intensive bootcamp that teaches students to design, code, and deploy a custom algo trading strategy.

Each cohort culminates in a Demo Day where students present their strategies to earn certification.

 Coding was just a hobby, but then I found that I can make money from it. Now, I run Hummingbot to support my family's needs and serve as a Botcamp mentor! 


Professional-grade training for algo traders and market makers

Over 5 weeks of live instruction and mentorship, participants learn how to design and deploy powerful, sophisticated strategies from the ground up using Hummingbot's new V2 Strategies Framework.
