Office Hours.png

"Office Hours" is an initiative by Decibel Capital to help those traders who have no coding background/experience and are looking to learn Python.

We are looking to build a small cohort of traders who learn to code and back-test their ideas. This is directed towards beginners with little to no-coding background or exposure to Python. 

Pre-requisites to join this cohort:  

  1. You should be a trader with non-trading background. 

  2. You are currently learning Python. Either have already begun or close to beginning. 

  3. Willing to spend at least 5-10 hours a week in trying to learn to code in Python


Further details:

- We are not conducting LIVE classes. We will likely post some free resources that you're expected to follow yourself and come with your doubts to a session. 


- The sessions will take place entirely ONLINE and will be limited to 1-1.5 hours in a week. The timing of these sessions might be early morning or late night in your respective time zone. Given we are a global team, you might have to accommodate timings. We aim to record sessions and provide recordings. 


- Selected cohort traders will be expected to submit questions ahead of the interactive session to enhance efficiency for the cohort. 


 - This cohort will be limited to 5-10 people at a time. You can always collaborate with your peers. We reserve the right to approve/deny anyone in the cohort. 


- There is no hand-holding or spoon-feeding from our side on this. 



There will be a Fee of INR 1,000/- per month. There will be a minimum commitment of 3 months for people selected. This is because for anyone starting from scratch, it will take at least that much time to learn anything meaningful at slow pace. Beyond that you can choose to continue to be a part of the cohort or drop as per your convenience. 


Screening Process

Due to the overwhelming response received on the initial Twitter thread, we will be implementing a screening process to filter in the final cohort. The screening process consists of a short application, followed by a quick/call interview for those selected for initial shortlist. You can apply for the Summer'21 Batch at the end of this page.
