|Hi, I am curious if anyone could give any suggestions as to an appropriate sector
within the software development industry given my interests.|
My interests within the field is not what one would call
narrow. Primarily though, I have a fondness for programming
language theory, compilers, parsing and writing my own DSLs so
that I can make powerful compile-time assertions regarding my
code as well as generate tests automatically from the DSL itself.
My StackOverflow cv has an additional set of tasks that pertain
to my interests, http://stackoverflow.com/cv/filipallberg.
Regarding my primary interests, the only relevant "thing" I have
come up with is web-scraping, but I find it is a dull task as it
is a trivial matter to me.
Machine vision is also something that I think a lot about,
however most of my ideas are consumer-facing utilities and not
something to build a business around. If I get a good idea I'd be
willing to go into business myself.
