Wolfram Technologies Workshop for Actuarial Sciences
This free event features both presentations and hands-on tutorials and is open to all, but is specifically designed for those working in the actuaries field. The event is a great platform to network with like-minded actuarial professionals during the coffee break and after the last presentations.
Seats are limited, so register soon.
You'll learn about the latest in Wolfram technologies through live tutorials and training sessions, and you're also encouraged to bring your laptop along so that you can join in and take advantage of these interactive sessions.
Or you can just sit back and enjoy the sessions as presentations.
Hands-On: Mathematica—An Introduction
Whether you're new to Mathematica or are already familiar with the system, you will gain valuable information about applying our computation to your workflow most efficiently. You can either sit back and enjoy this session as a presentation, or bring your laptop along and take part.
Download a free 30-day trial of Mathematica here.
