Hello Everyone,

My name is Gary Rashed and I'm probably a bit different from the typical student here. I've been a software developer for 15 years now at various financial companies ( Bridgewater, Credit Suisse to name a few ). My primary language(s) are c#, t-sql and python. These are great languages and they have served me well, but I'm at the point in my career where I am looking to make a change. The aforementioned languages are great ( especially c# ), but as you move up and up in your career, you hit a point where you need to be able to write some low level software that can really perform. I've hit that point in my career, so here I am, finally ready to learn c++

Objective: To learn C++ effectively enough to write a full trading algo.
Programming Experience: c#, python, t-sql ( hey, writing sql is really important kids !!!! ).
Current Work: Working as a software developer at a hedge fund.
Intended Pace: Between putting the kids to bed and waking up for work, I hope to put in the time.
 
Hello everyone,
Objective: To learn C++ for a career in derivatives trading and to get admission in a top MFE program.

Programming experience: Python

Current work: Market Risk Quant

The intended pace of the program: I will be studying stochastic calculus along with this program for my next project on derivative pricing, so I intend to go as slow and in-depth as possible, ending the course by the beginning of March 2022.
