I’ve been telling students for years: get comfortable with programming and automation or be replaced by a robot. This plan to hire programmers by Goldman is not new to the industry. Last year I posted an article about Citi doing the same thing: https://efficientminds.com/2018/06/14/citi-wants-analysts-to-add-python-to-list-of-languages-on-resume/
So when you took/take my class, be mindful of why I weave programming into the course.
