Bloomberg connects influential decision makers to a dynamic network of information, people and ideas. Our strength – quickly and accurately delivering data, news and analytics through innovative technology – is at the core of everything we do. Key participants in the financial markets depend on Bloomberg’s core product, the Terminal, to trade, manage risk, consume information, and navigate time-critical decisions. This means we must leverage the best technologies available for all of our projects. As a longtime proponent of open source technologies, our developers are also significant contributors to many projects including Apache Solr/Lucene, Apache Hadoop and OpenStack, and we publish many of our own projects on GitHub. We are always looking for new ways to work with, analyze, and display our data and often choose Jupyter to rapidly develop prototypes and share results with others across our data science, machine learning and quantitative research teams. Bringing Jupyter to Bloomberg also means we are actively contributing to the community.
