Seeking advice on platforms (or not) for integrated Algo development.

Starting at ground-zero as an Algo Trading developer, I am hoping for some advice on platforms for operationalizing strategies—i.e. would like to ultimately only build things 2 to 3 times before actually getting a clue of what I should have done to begin with. ; )
I have 20+ years of professional software development experience, mainly writing backend services in Perl, Java, Python, JavaScript or Go. Finance was my Major as an Undergrad. Instruments of interest are Options, Futures and maybe Forex.
First question; should I even seriously choose an integrated environment, or—like everything else I do for a paycheck—build something from 'scratch' because of bad fills or high commissions? Normally, for a question like this, in some order, I'll do exhaustive feature comparisons, correspond/talk with vendors, kick some tires and talk to peers to make sure nothing has been missed, however, nobody I know has ever done anything like what people here are doing or trying to do, so...
Has anyone had experience with Quantower? Quantower looks impressive and allows for writing strategies in C#.
Noted also that cTrader Automate (formerly known as cAlgo), MultiCharts .NET and NinjaTrader (via NinjaScript) also have integrated C# or C#-ish software language strategy development and IB allows C# as well as other languages via the Trader Workstation API.
C# seems like a good choice (nowish) for the sake of portability as it looks like more platforms run on Windows than Mac or Linux and most support integrated strategy development using the C or C++ or C# languages, or scripts based thereon.
People mention a lot of interest in using R and Python, two languages I like, though their support for integrated strategy development seems to be only slowly catching up to the other languages. Is this accurate?

Post and user flair suggestions for r/DayTrading

Hey day traders, looking to get suggestions on flairs. Currently our user flair is pretty basic, just beginner, intermediate, or advanced and we don't even verify this. And we don't have any post flairs right now, so this post is going to address those 2 things.
I am considering mod only user flair assignment, and even hiring some flair mods from the community to give out flairs when appropriate. Is that actually a good idea? Either way, I'll let users keep choosing their own flair even after I add the new flairs while having mod only assignable flairs for the best of both worlds.
For posts: Over at futurestrading I created a ton of post flairs with automod auto assigning them out, and users could still flair their own posts, plus a search by flair in the sidebar, and that worked out extremely well.
But here, I don't think we'll need such a broad spectrum of flairs based on futures, maybe just "futures" for all futures products, "forex" for all currency pairs, etc. So these are what I'm planing for post flairs:
As for user flairs I'm considering (since we can't discern or completely verify someone's skill level or gains, or have the time for that, none of the flairs will describe someone's skill level, except for them being a new member to the community and for the flairs rewarding someone's advice giving history):
mod only assignable flairs
user assignable flairs
What do you think? Feel free to suggest other flairs that I didn't cover or tell me which flairs are just downright bad.
Update added penny stock trader flair to this list, trade idea, trading screens, workstation; expanded user flairs for algo trader; also added "trades everything," "trades multiple markets," investor (if you want to be that guy in the wrong sub) and "not-a-day-trader" to cover everyone who doesn't day trade but does something else like invest/swing
I still don't know what to do if you trade more than one thing, I guess for now you would just pick the one you trade the most. I could expand algo trader to "algo stock trader" and so on and that's it, but to get all the combinations for the rest would be an insane list. I think cryptocurreny had a similar problem and then went with a bot that just picked a flair for you based on your comment history, I'm not going to do that. So I added a bunch of new user flairs to the list above that should satisfy everyone, if not, let me know.

r/Daytrading - Select your new user flair! Also start using post flairs!

Going off my last post: Please select your new user flair. There's still an opportunity to suggest new flairs if you feel the available flairs don't describe what kind of day trader you are. Same goes for post flairs.
The post flairs are:
user assignable flairs:
mod only assignable flairs:
I will have automod assign post flairs based on keywords at a later time, for example, someone says "any crude futures traders here?" then the post will be auto assigned the flair "futures," but the user can change it afterwards if they want.
Ok thanks day traders for all the feedback in the last post!

update I just added flair search on the redesign:

https://i.redd.it/odeh6xxpxfd31.png
update2 I did start the automod for post flairs, but it's not as clear cut for each flair, but if someone would like to suggest some patterns for specific post flairs, let me know:

Why can't I log out of the app? Or a unicorn has appeared.

I work at a large-ish forex trading company($FX) as a customer support representative. We place high value on customer care, so we don't have any calls per hour quotas to meet, which means we might sometimes get to sit on a call for an hour or two while we attempt to solve whatever issue the clients are facing. It's actually a pretty fun job.
This tale is from a few months ago, when I just started working there. A Tech Savvy Customer($TSC) calls in with an issue regarding one of our mobile trading apps, and I get to pick up the call.
I sign into my workstation, and about a minute after I turn the phone on, I get a call. "This is going to be a great day." I think and pick up the call.
$Me: "Welcome to $FX, can I have your account number?" $TSC: "It's 1111111. I have an issue with my mobile trading app. The app updated a couple of days ago, and ever since the update my account won't get logged unless if I kill the app through the task manager."
$Me: Now this might be interesting. I get a pen and paper ready to write down all the relevant information (Personal preference. I summarize everything after I end the call)
$Me: "OK, can you tell me the brand and OS version of your phone?"
Shockingly, he knows how to get the relevant details. This might be a unicorn.
$TSC: "S5 Edge, android 5.1" $Me: "Alright. Can you please describe the issue in detail?" $TSC: "Yeah: After logging off my account, I get to the login screen. So far so good. When I press the home button, I get the icon at the top showing that the app is running. If I open it, I'm logged into my account again. Same if I launch it through the main menu or the play store. I sent you guys an email a couple minutes ago with screenshots and a more detailed explanation, can you confirm you've received it?" $Me: Scribbling furiously " One moment please" Hold. I raise my head and ask around, "Hey guys, did one of you spot an email from $TSV's email address in the past half hour?" $Other reps: "Nope." $Me: Le sigh. Resume call "Thank you for holding, unfortunately we didn't get the email. Could you send it to [email protected]$FX.com?" $TSC: "Yeah, give me a sec. I don't actually mind myself, but there are people who don't lock their phones or leave it with unsupervised children. Someone might get royally screwed over this." $Me: Ding "You're absolutely right sir. I just received your email. I'll forward it to our QA and technical teams to have a look." $TSC: "Cool, thanks." Hangs up $Me: Yeah, screw you too
So I look through the screenshots and explanation... I swear, the guy either used to work QA or is currently working as a QA. Damned thing looks more detailed than most professional bug reports I've seen.
So I start writing a ticket to our RND team, but I figure I'll also try and replicate the issue. I can't stress enough how much leeway we get when dealing with customers, and if something like this happens a rep may go missing for the rest of the day. I sign off the phone, and steal a few phones from my fellow reps, both iPhones and Androids. I got lucky with 2 phones that didn't have auto updates running, so they had an older version which didn't have the issue. But as soon as I updated it? Yup, not logging out.
I change the severity of the still unopened ticket to critical, and write a tl;dr in the ticket notes, along with the phone models and version numbers I replicated it on.
Ticket sent, and I get the level 2 tech that was assigned to it on the phone.
$Me: "Hey, so this issue was spotted by a client. I replicated it on 5 different devices. All get the same issue." $L2T: "Yeah, saw the ticket. You're CCed on any updates about this. You'll need to follow up on this with the client once it's done." $Me: "Really?" $L2T: "Yeah, the rep who catches the issue does all the follow ups until resolution." $Me: Sounds fun. $L2T: "Cheers"
A few days pass, and I finally get an update
Ticket closed. ask the customer to update his app
So I do just that. While waiting for him to puck up I check it on my own phone. Looks like it's fixed.
$TSC: "Hello?" $Me: "Hello, this is $Me from $FX. I'm following up on an issue you had with your mobile app?" $TSC: "Yeah, it's working fine. Thanks."
Awesome client. Made me feel utterly useless.
Moral of the story? Some customers use CS reps as a human ricketing system. This is one of maybe 3 cases where I didn't actually do anything at all.

Haven't made a build since Ivy Bridge launch; looking for quality/reliability/aesthetics in my price point of $2100 CAD

Build Help/Ready:

Have you read the sidebar and rules? (Please do)
Yea bud
What is your intended use for this build? The more details the better.
Primarily a workstation for running charting software for trading CFDs and Forex. I also spend a few hours a week in Lightroom and Photoshop, occasionally might to some light video editing w/ Premiere. Gaming is about as important though.
If gaming, what kind of performance are you looking for? (Screen resolution, FPS, game settings)
I would mostly play CS and Rocket League but I will be looking to play whatever AAA titles come out this fall on 3440x1440 @100Hz I don't expect to max out every game at this UW2K resolution but having that resolution and refresh rate is important to me
What is your budget (ballpark is okay)?
$2100 CAD after taxes (13%) is pretty much my max. I may push $2200 if I feel it's worth it. I still have to spend a lot on new monitor, desk, and audio.
In what country are you purchasing your parts?
Canada

Provide any additional details you wish below.
Things I do not want changed: The case (it's been purchased already), this exact GPU I'm pretty set on unless you can convince me otherwise. I want the CPU cooler to be closed loop. I don't like the look of traditional air coolers.
Things I'm concerned about in terms of QC and reliability: Motherboard (they all seem like they have issues failing), CPU cooler
Please recommend anything that's more reliable or may suit my needs better. I'm very concerned about buying products that are DOA or die within a few months of purchase. I said in another thread "I'm terrified to buy something expensive that's going to fail on me after a month. I'm spending about $2200 CAD and for every part I pick it's like trying to find the dud in an ocean of landmines. My last build went so well, but when I read reviews on new parts it makes the buying process so stressful."
Thanks in advance!
