Pricing products using Python graphs and sets

A session at EuroPython 2011

  • Rob Collins

Wednesday 22nd June, 2011

12:15pm to 1:00pm (CET)

We will look at the limitations of available rule engines when it comes to complex pricing rules. Rob has been part of a Python team writing a pricing engine based on network graphs. We will show:

(1) Why pricing is not easy
(2) Rule engine anti-patterns, e.g. to change one price requires a
week's development time, and has to be fitted into a release cycle
(3) How to make pricing rules data driven, usable by the business
(4) How the use of graphs and sets reduces the complexity

Technologies used:
python-graph, NetworkX, Redis
