Computer Programming within the Investment Analysis Industry

Are there any programmers out there? I took Level 1 of CFA in December 2015 and Level 2 in June 2016. It was pretty much around the clock studying for a complete year. I had nothing to fill the void with after sitting for the Level 2 exam, so I started taking free online courses on Computer Programming, specifically Python. I am really enjoying it so far.

Are there any analysts out there who use any languages like Python in their work and would you recommend up-and-coming analysts to learn programming?

Yes and yes.

Keep up the learning. You will be in demand with both skill sets.
