Hey everyone!

Objective: Learn C++ to further my career and improve existing processes at work (slow R code I hope to speed up with C++). I'm thinking of applying to masters in CS programs, I might apply to a few MFE programs.

Programming experience: Python, R, SQL.

Current work: Data Scientist at the Fed in NY

Intended pace of program: I'd hope to complete in around 12-16 weeks. I'm also taking a graduate algorithms course at NYU, so hopefully it isn't too much to work and take two courses.
