JuMP

Abstract:

Fantasy Premier League is an online fantasy sports game where you select a team of 15 players and score points based on their performance each week. You have a finite budget and each player costs a certain amount, plus a number of other constraints which makes this an optimisation problem that JuMP can solve. In this talk I will work through this problem and show how each constraint is translated into the JuMP language. It will be a fun introduction to optimisation in an alternative domain.
