Good post. My thoughts are that a good software developer will find any task in any platform easy if he has good analytical skills like using loops, recursions etc and basic algebraic skills. That said, other fields specially vector, 3D graphics are more nuanced and one has to go through good amount of time and efforts to learn them and develop user interactive games and apps. In my case, due to nature of clients, formulas for entropy, resistance and scientific formulas were used a lot and reminded me of Engineering days (Electronics was my major) but I didn't care to check about formulas as the core engineering team will provide them. It was basically separation of concerns: the abstract formulas from scientific team and building software based on them was ours :)
