Earlier in the week at JAX Finance I gave a talk titled, "Social Media, Real Time AI and the search for Alpha". The talk looked at the general problem of extracting information from social media and some of the challenges arising from delivering a real-time system to trade off.
In preparing for JAX Finance 2017 I came across the video of my 2016 talk, "The Problem of Finance". I reference that in the talk this year so thought I'd share a link to it here.
Last week I had the pleasure of speaking at EXTENT 2016 in the London Stock Exchange. It was a fantastic day and overall an excellent conference. My talk was titled, "Testing the Architecture". The slides are available online as a PDF along with video but the full animated slides are available here.
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!
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!
