Scott Logic’s trading game is shock crowd pleaser at ETOT 2015

Screen Shot 2015-11-16 at 14.59.29A virtual trading game created by bespoke software development firm Scott Logic created a spark at last week’s Energy Trading Operations and Technology Summit (ETOT).

The UK-based consultancy was an exhibitor at the annual three-day conference, where attendees were charged with making a virtual profit playing its ‘Dead Cat Bounce’ commodities trading game.

The eventual winner, Dublin-based Matt Reid, current-ly a Project Manager from Ireland’s Electricity Supply Board (ESB) was Scott Logic’s final competitor of the week, making an amp-le profit of just under £2,000. He put up little resistance to the news that he’d bagged himself an Apple Watch Sport for his lightning conduct navigating the markets!

He said of the win: “I’ve been an admirer of the Apple Watch, and had cheekily put it onto my Christmas list, along with the usual Rolls Royce, so it’s been fantastic news.

“Catching up with the guys at ETOT enabled me to understand the Agile approach that Scott Logic follows to create software solutions for clients, particularly in the energy industry. It was a win, win couple of days!”

Scott Logic is an active delegate at a number of national and international trade shows and conferences each year, where attendees can try their hand at playing ‘Dead Cat Bounce’ for themselves.
