First walk in the morning

All these years I have been thinking of the movements(read crashes and bombings) in the stock market. You know how .Net gets into blood streams of the developers so everything else doesn't really matter. Everything else in this world just becomes Objects, and Patterns, and Frameworks and "Object reference not set to an instance of an object" exceptions.

Well, that reminds me of Centrifugal Force and Frame Of Reference in class XII Physics. My frame of reference has a new angle now - Domain knowledge. The motive of .Net or any other OOP development is "object-ification of real world entities". What real world? If you are writing software for Real World, you need to know the Real World.

In my case the real world is Finance - Investment Banking to be precise. The term gives you a rich feeling - you feel like money is floating around. If thats not all, try - Equity, Wealth management, Futures, Options, Speculation, Hedging, Arbitrage, Foreign Exchange, Debt, Stocks, Bonds... the world is not enough.

Although my specialization is limited to Futures and Options, but its not restricted to it. I like to dive deeper into things. I have found a few pearls, and I'll share it with you.

My target audience are the ones who are new to this world. If you are an expert, I welcome your suggestions and feedbacks, and if you are a learner I will wait for your questions.

I am planning to key-in the extracts of domain knowledge I gain over time. Be with me to make this journey exciting. See you soon with me series of posts over fundamentals.
