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.
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.
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.
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!
