Computational Finance with R on Coursera

If you haven't signed up for the Introduction to Computational Finance and Financial Econometrics course taught by Eric Zivot on Coursera, it's not too late.  The second week just started and the first assignments aren't due until September 18th.

Join me in getting a good refresher on basic statistics, simulation and bootstrapping, linear algebra, and learning more about portfolio optimization, efficient portfolios, and risk budgeting.

Looks great. Thanks for sharing, Joshua. Did you happen to see that there is a financial engineering course on Coursea which features Emanuel Derman as a guest lecturer? It hasn't started yet, so I reckon you should check it out if you already haven't.
