Financial Engineering: Project work

Dear experts,

In the recent past I have been inquiring or seeking your expert guidance on pursuing a career in Financial Engineering.
I have now reached the stage of working on objects in C++. Once I am thorough with C++ and after having worked on ‘Introduction to C++ for Financial Engineers’ by Daniel J Duffy, I plan to do a project work.
This project work will be done by me while I am in leave.
Can I request if anyone can guide me on selecting a project on Python/C++?
Which platform will be robust for this purpose?
Is there a book I can purchase and practice? Can I use the knowledge I gain by practicing this book in my interview process?

Kindly guide me.

Hi Excellearner,

Experts Exchange offers some courses on Python (https://www.experts-exchange.com/topics/python/courseList.jsp?topicLink=true), C++ (https://www.experts-exchange.com/topics/cpp/courseList.jsp?topicLink=true), and general accounting (https://www.experts-exchange.com/topics/accounting/courseList.jsp?topicLink=true) to help you build your knowledge base.

I found a resource for using Python to do financial analysis http://dx-analytics.com/index.html.

I hope you find these resources helpful!
