Have two questions really:

1. Any good recommendations on programming topics/languages/courses to take to transition into a fintech role?

2. Any recommendations on some higher paying career paths/employers that may look for somebody with finance/accounting & programming knowledge?

Started learning python recently and have really enjoyed the journey so far. Still very beginner level but looking for some guidance or personal experience from others who have done something similar recently.
