The goal of this three-day intensive hands-on course is to take a bird-eye look at the design of the QuantLib library as well as its rationale, to examine its implementation, and thus to learn how one's own code can be fitted on top of QuantLib to reuse and benefit from provided functionality. The course will focus on QuantLib proper, i.e., on the C++ library and won't cover extensions such as the Excel addin.
This is a practical course for financial market participants.

P.S. You might be interested in my recent interview with Dr Greg B. Davies, who first set up and now runs Barclays Bank Behavioural Finance unit, the first such unit in a major bank. Rather like Richard Peterson, the subject of a previous interview, Dr Davies approaches his subject from a truly interdisciplinary perspective. Prior to his work with Barclays, he studied economics, philosophy and finance at the University of Cape Town before completing a Masters Degree in Economics at Cambridge where he also received a PhD in Decision Theory and Behavioural Finance. Besides acting as a consultant on cognitive psychology, behavioural economics, behavioural finance, and decision science, he has lectured in Decision Science at the London School of Economics, was an Honarary Research Fellow at University College London and is presently an Associate Fellow at Said Business School at Oxford University.
Dr Davies is also the author, with Arnaud de Servigny, of the 2012 book. Behavioral Investment Management: An Efficient Alternative to Modern Portfolio Theory published by McGraw-Hill.
