I've been programming for the better part of a quarter century. I fell in love with computers at an early age. I started writing small programs in BASIC on a Vtech laptop I got one Christmas. Since then, I've learned dozens of programming languages and worked with several software development environments. As a student studying computer science at the University of Pittsburgh, I set out to become an enterprise software engineer and delved into FOREX trading on FXCM in my spare time. Algorithmic trading was a natural progression. QuantConnect has been a God send for strategy development and back-testing.
