Hi,

I'm a Physics graduate and a Java programmer at the same time. I'm also familiar with Borland Delphi, and SQL in general. Can anyone advice on how I can slowly shift careers from programming financial software to programming software for Science or Physics in general? I'm interested in Physics and I'd like to apply what I've learned in college. What fields should I explore and what kinds of software and algorithms do I have to start to learn and develop?

Any advice will be appreciated.

Thanks!

Hi Raymond,

One option is to talk to physics faculty members at universities. They often need help creating stimulations. You should also look at educational software companies, which might put out software used in schools.
