Has anyone here heard of or used 'Quantopian'? Any thoughts / comments?

 

I've just come across the website and it looks interesting. The possibility to backtest algorithms and test them going forward via paper trading looks particularly interesting. Anyway, I'll have to spend some time to try and make sense of the format (Python) as I don't have much experience with programming, but it doesn't look impossible.

Anyway, not meaning to make this sound like an informercial, I'm just beginning to try and systematise my trading / analysis, and this seems like it might be a pretty useful platform to look into.

 

If anyone has any thoughts or comments (regarding Quantopian and/or other platforms to backtest/filter trading strategies) I would be very interested to hear them!
