In this episode, we chat with Li Ouyang, who made the transition from derivatives trader on Wall Street to programmer at a crypto startup. She talks about her education at The Flatiron School, her favorite programming languages, and the advice she gives family members who want to put their savings entirely into Bitcoin.

There is a lot to think about when designing trading algorithms, especially in the world of cryptocurrency, where prices can be extremely volatile and limited liquidity means a single trader moving big volume can have a hefty influence on price.

Bitcoin is at a record breaking price these days, but investing in it is not for the faint of heart. To learn more, we chat with Li, who is a software engineer at Coinbase. You can find her on Twitter here.

If you’re interested in learning more about Bitcoin, we would have to recommend Bitcoin Developer. After all, they were kind enough to recommend our Bitcoin Stack Exchange as a key resource.
