What device did you test on? I know iOS devices can't play Flash so this player should automatically display HTML5 player and theoritically work on all platforms.Other than the suspect scottish accent, it works fine :D
Which part(s)? Background colour etc.
Latex is for maths?
BTW PowerPoint is used everyhere.
Thanks, we will look into it. It's not much effort to change colour and font.The background colour as well as font colour. I would use a white background with blue or black font colour. It is much easier to learn follow a presentation with such a simplistic design.
Latex slides can be used for everything and I think that the layout is much better (plus creating the presentation is done quicker).
This is my first post here, I felt that I just had to register when I saw this thread!
My background is that I have master's degree in mathematics with finance as my specialization. I have some courses in programming like JAVA, Matlab and a High performance programming course (Fortran and C). But my impression while looking for various quant jobs is that almost all require exceptional skills in C++. So I've decided I need to do something about that!
In order to become more attractive on the job market. Do you think this course is something for me, or is it too basic? I have previous knowledge in C++ but I haven't taken any courses.
The point about this course is that it leaves (almost) no stone unturned and we do STL, Boost and quant applications in C++ as well. (As the course progresses we do more and bigger examples directly related to QF). I am not aware of any other course doing this.
It is hard to say if it is too easy for you; from my experience with MSc students and the fact that C++ is big, my guess is you would benefit, not just the language but also in applying it.
What does 'previous knowledge' mean?
Just give me the employer number so I can ring him/herHi!
I'm sorry for being unclear. With previous knowledge I mean the basics like pointers, dynamic memory, data structures, classes and namespaces. But it was some 4 years ago so it's kind of fading away.
From the description, the course sounds extremely appealing and especially the QF applications. My main question is probably not if it will be too easy for me but rather if employer will regard it as a merit. I personally am quite confident that I will be able to snap up the required skills fairly quickly but that's not easy for an employer to know.

Seriously, QN/Baruch/DD are on this so the full support will be fine. I am sure Andy can give more details.

We do much more.
