The increase in Algorithmic Trading has been enormous over the last 10 years and shows no sign in letting up.

This is also reflected in the fact that candidates come out of research positions and university with good basic knowledge now compared to 10 years ago.  People are learning to code younger and younger. I got my son a Raspberry Pi when he was 5..... admittedly a little to young but I had fun with it. Now he's 8 I am going to start him on Python.   Who wants to be an Astronaut anyway, get trading son. 

Happy reading.
