Specific Areas for Software Developers

Assuming you want to get into the financial side as a software developer, which areas need software development the most? Would you say risk management modeling, valuation models, brokerage tools, etc? If so, are you familiar with any specific areas that software developers are working on these days? Assume the software developer has a CFA already.

All areas always need software development. Languages: APL, C++, C#, Visual Studio, OCaml, Oracle and an ability to communicate in English (the latter not mentioned as a joke). Google for ‘3544 8800’ and you’ll be able to find some useful input (this post might also be useful for maddane).
