Well, I started off in quant analytics at Lehman- my undergrad was CS, my work at Lehman and the successor firm after that (I don't want to be too public about my identity online) was mostly in Java, but it started to move more and more towards trade strategy.
Now I work mostly in R rather than Java, with Finance and Econometrics PhDs rather than developers. I now talk more about t-statistics than I do TIBCO or threading. I guess you can still call it coding, but there's a huge finance and stats component to it.
