About the talk:
High Frequency Trading systems are in an arms race with no prizes for coming second. Today's environment is very different from a few years ago. New hardware architectures present opportunities and challenges. Costs are increasingly important. Richard will describe a typical trading system and then discuss how they are evolving to embrace new technologies including noSQL, FPGA's, GPU's, kernel bypass, RDMA and many core.
A HFT system designer now needs to understand when to use these and how best to program them.
- Give everybody a basic understanding of a High Frequency Trading system.
- Describe how noSQL, FPGAs, GPU's, kernel bypass, RDMA and different programming models are being used to build the latest high frequency trading systems.
- Guide developers as to what skill's are hot and where they need to strengthen their skills to get the best positions.
- Existing HFT system designers, programmers who want to improve their systems and those seeking to learn about these high performant environments.
