i studied computer engineering at a public university and got a good gpa.

if you're trying to say you want to learn programming, then do javascript. it's easy and useful, you can throw together a website and show recruiters how resourceful you are.

but learn c or assembly (or computer architecture) sometime if you're serious about becoming a real programmer.

>learn c or assembly (or computer architecture) sometime if you're serious about becoming a real programmer

I can't agree with this more. There's a shit ton of people that know how to do web development, but C and assembler will always be God-tier when it comes to programming. I started with C and assembler; everything just fell into place after that.

I do IT work for a small company in NY. Got only an ok GPA for my major (management/information systems, not actual computer science) and I learned cF and Python for my work.
Do I have a shot of working for a firm like yours?

here are some typical interview questions i've seen at my company:

- given a pointer to a node A in a linked list, insert a new node in front of A

- given a list of integer IDs, write a function get_id() such that each call to get_id() returns a single (uniformly distributed) random ID from the list. get_id() should not return the same ID twice until it has returned every ID in the list once.

- write a function which estimates the area covered on a 2d plane by overlapping circles

you should also be able to do design problems, e.g. how would you design a backend for twitter

>i'm now getting paid twice as much as my classmates from the same major who are working elsewhere
so what you're saying is that you make much more money in an area with a much higher cost of living
>>
>>26017876
Salary is only 65k, but bonus is usually north of a million. I work in energy, specifically trading crude for one of the supermajors. I am financially successful, especially so because I'm really quite frugal. I never tell anyone in person what I make, I live alone, and have no family (in the city I live), nor do I have a gf.

Why do you feel the need to go to a place like /r9k/, full of some of the saddest and most unemployed losers in the Western world, and wave your paycheck around?

Do you like to go into petting zoos and kick the animals?
>>
>>26018676
What is "trading crude" exactly? How does this work? Do you have anything I can read up about this?

Well that partly explains why your salary is so high. NYC has an inflated standard of living compared to the rest of the country.

the short story is I buy oil from suppliers, and sell it anywhere I can. Sometimes I have to do blendstocks (where I'll set up for two grades to be mixed in tank and delivered at points a>b>c...etc.) other times I might set up contracts, like for instance the russian ruble has fallen pretty drastically. each one of my dollars can now buy 3x as much oil when converted to the local currency (before even accounting for the price crash). so perhaps my contract is for 200k barrels/month out of west russia, for delivery to china (delivery set in USD), tankering is contracted for 12 months, and the currency difference (along with credit issues in russia) might cause the spread between russian and japanese crude to open to 4 USD/bbl. so now my trade is locked in making 4 dollars per barrel, on 200k barrels, every month for 12 months, and it's almost all on credit, so I don;t even have to lay out money in advance. My company keeps 95% of the profit, I keep 5% delivered at the end of the year as my bonus.

this is just one trade, in a good year, I might make 10-20 big trades like this
