Thanks. I should be clear... what topics should I be searching on? Tech person here

when I don’t know what to search for, I literally would type my question into google word for word, and it works most of the time. And if not, it gives me a good lead. For you — literally search “where can I find intro to finances as a tech person” 👀 With no formal background in the area of finance, it’s better for you to do a survey/intro of the area before you figure out what you want to read more on

Professor Google has online material on this
