Which technology-related companies do the most interesting work?
What skills are the most in-demand at those companies? Cybersec? Statistics?
FinTech is an emerging market, so I'd be interested in that. There are newly minted positions like "Quantitative Developer" that are not just catch phrases, but actually very specific job titles.
Not just any software engineer can grab those jobs. You need to be able to code and implement stochastic models, math concepts, etc. I'd look into that stuff.
So I found this 4 for $12.59, am I reading it right? Or is it $12.59 each?

/g/, do you prefer to buy Windows, original or from a site like eBay? Or do you use an activator? If so, which one?
How do I stop Windows 10 from keeping track of the games I play? I never asked to be logged into this Xbox app, let alone have it record my games.

Does /g/ know if AMD eventually fixed the buggy VME implementation on their ryzen chips?
I just graduated University with a MS in Mathematics. My MS was focused primarily on control theory and I took some applied math classes which had some coding assignments, but I didn't do anything extreme coding at all. I was given projects and was just told to do certain things; we weren't graded on coding elegance, ease or anything of the like.
Anywho, I'm starting to look for positions in the tech field and I'm practicing my coding. I've forgotten a bit of it (aside from the stuff I learned in my recent MS), but I've become fond of HackerRank. Found out about it three days ago and I've been spending hours on solving problems in many of their sections.
1. Is this a good way to refine/learn coding? I'm also learning from a book by doing some self studying, but HackerRank is really awesome and I find myself enjoying coding a lot more.
2. For some of the problems, is it bad to use Google for parts of it? For example, for one problem, I was able to develop a nice algorithm to solve it, but forgot how to find the min/max of an array (which was necessary for my algorithm to work). I looked up how to implement the min/max of an array, understood/learned the logic of it and then implemented it into my own code. The algorithm worked, I was happy. Is this bad or considered cheating? I didn't look up the question itself.
3. The algorithms and code I develop seem to be a bit more ... plentiful? I see other people solve coding challenges with like 10 lines of code while mine has 15 or more lines. Or, they have two for loops, but I have three or four. I'd imagine this is bad, but how bad is it?
Also, any advice for someone who wants to work for a FinTech/EdTech company? Thanks.
How so? Genuinely curious how you think I'm being coddled. Wouldn't being coddled imply that I need to always have approval for anything/everything I do, not writing a bit of code before pushing it? I've done all the coding myself, so...I don't understand.
Can you elaborate?

Is this mouse a meme or actually good? Considering picking up a new mouse and this was the first thing that came to mind.
