        Other languages:
        Python (fairly advanced)
        Bit of JavaScript/TypeScript for random UI work.

        Reason taking this course:
        I’ve mainly used Python but working in finance C++ is common. We do some fairly large data processing so I’m interested in some of C++’s performance. To put it another way, if people call Python the glue language, sometimes it’s good to know the glue.
        I’m also looking to expand my knowledge of other languages. There’s a ton of C++ code out there, while it’s not as trendy as Rust, it’s a tour de force. It’s hard to argue with the massive amount of existing, high performance code. I’m interested in seeing how Python integrates with C++.

        Unique fact:
        I watched the sun rise from the top of Mt. Fuji.

        Other interests:
        *Not necessarily in this order.
        Cooking / eating (I’m a foodie). Sports, esp. college football (Fight On! USC). Spending time with my 3-yr old daughter.
