I have never really done a large amount of C programming but am in the middle of teaching myself low latency C++. Would it do more harm than good to read the K&R C programming book? I am a bit ...
Most low latency/high frequency programming jobs (based on job specs) appear to be implemented on unix platforms. In a lot of the specs they make particular request for people with "low latency linux" ...
(This is mainly aimed at those who have specific knowledge of low latency systems, to avoid people just answering with unsubstantiated opinions). Do you feel there is a trade-off between writing ...
Does the "magic" of the JVM hinder the influence a programmer has over micro-optimisations in Java? I recently read in C++ sometimes the ordering of the data members can provide optimizations ...
I am interested in ultra high frequency trading and Java is the language I know best. I was always under the impression I would have to perfect my C++ skills in order to work within the ultra high ...
Could Java ever match C++ with regards to programming ultra high frequency systems? Has the JVM improved enough to allow this? From a theoretical or practical point is it possible? Is C++ used in ...
