I wrote code in Java several years ago, but I can't claim I know any Java anymore. Or much programming in general, to be honest. I am just starting to use Octave as I am taking an online machine learning class offered by Andrew Ng at Stanford.
I've only programmed for about 2-3 years, and that was about 10-11 years ago.
After working for software firms for several years, in 2008, I started a firm recruiting for quantitative hedge funds. I have an operations research graduate degree and somewhat miss my problem-solving days. So, I'm studying machine learning now.
