Sunil is not the only one who tried but failed to break into java. Sunil was motivated by the huge java job market. I believe he had opportunities to work on (probably small) java projects and gained confidence, but that’s really the easy part. That GTD experience was completely insufficient to crack java interviews. He needs IV traction.
- Zhurong also tried java
- [g] Venkat actually got a java job in SCB but didn’t like it. I feel he was lacking GTD traction
- [g] XR and the Iranian java guy had some c# projects at work but didn’t gain traction.
- CSY had a lot to tell me about breaking into java.
- [gi] CSY and Deepak CM both had java projects at work but no traction
- [i=IV traction]
- [g=GTD traction]
IV/QQ traction — I experienced better IV traction in c# than c++. I think it’s because half my c++ interviews were HFT shops.
