(context — IV, not performance) When you compete for trading jobs in SG, you must show convincing value-add otherwise why should they pick you rather than some regular java guy in SG with 15 years xp?

— ranked in terms of entry barrier

  1. * c++
  2. * WPF? i think in a growing number of cases, a java guy can help out on the front end
  3. * socket, TCP/IP, FIX
  4. * analytics
  5. * low latency
  6. * distributed cache
  7. * swing — few java guys do swing but swing is fading
  8. * db tuning
  9. * threading,
  10. * java memory management
  11. * MOM — RV, MQ
  12. * biz jargons — they buy it
  13. * serialization
  14. * CEP??
