Small Correction/ addition to my post:
Using OpenGamma source code means, installing all the software stack on my machine and studying /researching the source code, unit tests through tools/IDEs to improve my skills. Thanks again.

Hi reddy579,

Thanks for your interest in OpenGamma!

OpenGamma is a great platform to learn from. Even if you are not dealing specifically with finance there is a good set of design patterns that can be applied in almost any industry.

To get stated I would suggest you take a look at this:
http://docs.opengamma.com/display/DOC/Quick-start+guide

After that, I would suggest looking at this blog posts and then looking through the code to see how they are applied.
