Although QuantLib has been around as open source for almost 16 years, a lot of people still do not know it well enough.
QuantLib is a serious piece of kit used by many professional finance companies. It provides sophisticated pricing functionality that can confidently compete with costly off-the-shelf or in-house pricing libraries.
In this presentation we will live code a swap pricer in Excel that uses the multi-curve pricing functionality in QuantLib.
We will then go on to show examples of using QuantLib's bindings to other languages (via SWIG).
