I am submitting applications to entry level Quantitative Developer positions. I come from the mathematical finance side but can code in C++ with simple concurrency. Many of the job postings I see mention that a background in operating systems or networking is a plus, and many Glassdoor interview questions mention being asked about networking and operating systems.
The fields of operating systems and networking are huge; there are so many technologies involved. I suspect entry level HFT may not require the full scope of these subjects covered in standard textbooks, and that HFT may require field-specific knowledge that is not sufficiently covered in these textbooks.
I'm willing to spend up to 20 hours learning about operating systems and networking if it improves my chances of being hired. Are there any good resources on the subjects that, if read (or watched), would allow me to claim "operating system" and "networking" knowledge on my resume, and answer common questions my interviewer may ask me in an entry-level HFT interview?
