Hi,

Excited to finally learning C++ rigorously.

Objective: Learn C++ to get a job as quant. Had an online assessment with Morgan Stanley and was completed blown away by the C++ part. Did terribly and had no idea what I was doing. Had another one with a hedge fund, asked about some basic C++ questions, felt sorry for wasting their time.

Programming experience: A lot of procedural programming experience with Python and Matlab. Some experience with C and C++ but nothing OOP.

Current work: 5th year PhD student at Yale, major in engineering (computational physics and engineering).

Intended pace of program: try to finish on time. Managing quant knowledge (probability, statistics, stochastic process, algorithm and DS, some finance basics, and of course, C++) learning is scary if you are doing research at the same time.

But this is not any old C++ course but the QN/Baruch C++ course and is exciting and not scary at all, especially with all the great support from the QN team 😁

Well, doing one at a time is not scary, but having multiple subjects on the list is pretty stressful :(
