For me videos are not an efficient way of studying/learning (there probably a few are exceptions, i.e.

How will you learn C++ otherwise? random internet copy and paste?

My videos are in 1:1 correspondence with code reality. Study them and then start coding. Be patient.

Get it working
then
Get it right
then and only then
Get it optimised

Alright, I found the detailed syllabus by clicking on something which at first just looked like graphics and not a button.
Hi,
I have updated the pages for the C++ courses changing the text link for the syllabus to say "Course Details". You can click on that link or button above it to get the syllabus PDF. I hope it's easier to find now.

What are the reasons for the popularity of the C++ language in quantitative finance?
I have asked two "big shots" within the quantitative finance realm about which programming language to learn, they both mentioned C++.

Did they give reasons or was it just "mentioned"?
And now you're asking me?
 
To be honest, I did not dare to send a following email with further questions after receiving replies to the first one I sent.
The reason is that they replied late at night, which means (I guess) that they are very busy.

Flow charts are very generic and have many specialisations. All kinds of enginers and busines analysts use it in one form or another.

DFD are cool and useful and Missing In Action as we see a process of widespread deskilling in software expertise during recent years. Software development savvy is ad-hoc etc. (copy-and-paste) a lot. Big anti-pattern.


Every little helps.
