Contributing to Quantlib as a wildcard??

Postby benn » Wed Jul 13, 2011 10:30 am

hi Mark

I am 29 with a Bachelors in math and masters in IT.( with no remarkable grades).However I am good at maths and it is a dream to have a math related career.

I learned about quants almost a year ago and since then i have been studying C++ and financial math , inconsistently, since I was doing C++/PHP projects on my own.one of them intended to find arbitrage opportunities in betfair(a betting exchange) market.

Now I am dedicating all my time studying your books so I can get involved in Quantlib project.Do you think this will help me to get a quant job?? I mean would a contribution to quantlib be an indication of my competency and compensate for poor grades and no experience? considering I am currently in Australia?

thanks in advance
benn

contributions to quantlib is certainly useful on a cv. It will take a lot more than reading my books to get to the point of doing so, however.
