The Problem of Finance

Two weeks ago at JAX Finance and JAX DevOps I gave a talk titled, "The Problem of Finance". I'm sharing the slides here for those who were not able to make it, or those who wondered if I really did spell blockchain incorrectly!

Managing C++ Build Complexity using Cuppa

I recently gave a short talk at the ACCU 2016 conference in Bristol titled “Managing C++ Build Complexity using Cuppa”. In fact I ended up giving the talk the shortened name of “A Quick Cuppa: With SCons”. Due to the time restrictions I added some bonus slides to the deck that I presented at the conference. This extended deck is available here.

ACCU 2016: Algorithmic Architecture

Not long ago I gave a talk at the excellent ACCU conference in Bristol titled “Algorithmic Architecture: Architecture in Evolving Regulatory Environments”. The talk received some very good feedback and quite a few people asked for the slides so here they are in their original format.

The Missing Piece to Understanding Market Liquidity

Last week we attended the 2016 World Exchange Congress, London, where I gave a talk titled, “The Missing Piece to Understanding Market Liquidity: Making Regulation Easier and More Effective”. Here are the slides.

A World of Exchanges

As part of our internal research we explore the number of execution venues (including organised markets and exchanges) that currently exist, the rate at which they are increasing, and how they are globally distributed. We thought we'd share the basics of that research as it makes for some interesting reading.

A Layman's Guide to Exchanges

People often ask me for a simple overview of what exchanges are. Many people know a bit about trading but are often uncertain of how exchanges really fit into that picture. This guide aims to provide a layman's introduction into how exchanges work, what matters to them and why participants in the markets should care.

Attending World Exchange Congress 2016

We will be attending the 2016 World Exchange Congress on the 22-23 March in London. If you want to learn how we're going to fundamentally change how liquidity is understood in the exchange space then we'll see you there.

Idiomatic C++ Training

C++ is widely used in Finance but often quality is lacking. With the recent standardisation of C++11 and C++14 the language is becoming "sexy" again and training courses are springing up to cater for demand. Sadly many courses are nothing more than feature overviews with no real advice on how to actually write good, idiomatic C++. We decided to do something about that.

clearpool.io are exhibiting at MoneyConf

We'll be exhibiting at MoneyConf on the 15th and 16th of June in Belfast - If you want to learn about the future of exchanges and how clearpool.io will change markets for the better come and talk to us!

Algorithmic Architecture

Last week at JAX Finance my talk titled, "Algorithmic Architecture: Performant architectures in the evolving regulatory landscape", was well received. I'm sharing the slides here for those who were not able to make it to the talk and wondered what all the fuss was about!
