#1@what I enjoy: body-build`

(Avichal asked me …)

#1 of what I enjoy most – body-building. There are various elements that make it challenging, engaging, sustainable

* some value-add for the tech community

* relevant to immediate IV -and- value-add-for-employer, which translates to stable and hopefully rising income…
Example – high performance c++ on linux

* unlocking additional job markets
Example – c++, c#, swing, socket
Example – FX domain knowledge
Example – quant stuff

* Real insight gained only by in-depth study, overcoming a non-trivial entry barrier, and building a lead over competitors
Example – quant trading strategy
Example – threading, STL,
Example – insights into c#
Example – stat risk content, even though not really relevant to my interviews.

* strategic value to my competitive position
