I am a software engineer. I might be working on a project in near future that will require some knowledge of basic finance terms.
I never had any course about finance or accounting in college or university. There will be a financial expert on project to guide the engineers but I also want to gain some knowledge about subject.
I would like to know if there is any book or small tutorial available that can teach me the basics. I searched online but could not find.
Some of the terms are Debt, Mortgage, Liquid Debt, Net Worth, Investment and Growth Rate, Loan, Credit Card and Interest rate, Ownership etc.
I can search for these terms online and understand but I don't want to be limited to these, I want to know the basics and there must be more terms there if our project grows in future.
- It is quite possible that all of these terms are easily understood to you, so please don't say this is 8th grade knowledge :)
