FAQ: Q&A: How to get into hedge fund, HFT, and quant world?

I just keep getting questions like this all the time so this will be last time in responding to it:

Hello Sir,
I'm a undergraduate in electronics and communication studying in SRM University and i will be doing MS in Computational Science/ Simulation Science and i would like to work in Hedge Funds in the future. Can you tell me where to start from. I know basics of C and C++. Please suggest me some websites and books or links to start with financial engineering. I would like to streamline myself in financial engineering programming, i'm a novice in programming, but i'm sure i'll learn quickly!

Thank you

About caustic

Hi i there My name is Bryan Downing. I am part of a company called QuantLabs.Net This is specifically a company with a high profile blog about technology, trading, financial, investment, quant, etc. It posts things on how to do job interviews with large companies like Morgan Stanley, Bloomberg, Citibank, and IBM. It also posts different unique tips and tricks on Java, C++, or C programming. It posts about different techniques in learning about Matlab and building models or strategies. There is a lot here if you are into venturing into the financial world like quant or technical analysis. It also discusses the future generation of trading and programming Specialties: C++, Java, C#, Matlab, quant, models, strategies, technical analysis, linux, windows P.S. I have been known to be the worst typist. Do not be offended by it as I like to bang stuff out and put priorty of what I do over typing. Maybe one day I can get a full time copy editor to help out. Do note I prefer videos as they are much easier to produce so check out my many video at youtube.com/quantlabs
