London User Group - May 2008

Building a high volume, low latency system in Java

Here are the details of the May London User Group.

  • Title : Building a high volume, low latency system in Java
  • Summary : This session will provide some insight into the architecture, design and development of a greenfield high volume, low latency trading and pricing system. Topics include :
    • The architecture and design itself.
    • How the early development of an executable reference architecture was used to help prove the low latency requirements.
    • The structure of the team and how the architecture was shared between a team of architects.
    • How mainstream technologies such as Java 5, Spring, JMS, and Oracle were used to successfully deliver a solution where other technologies like C++ might be the immediate first choice for low latency applications.
  • Speaker : Moudud Ahmed, Detica
  • Date : Tuesday, 6th May 2008
  • Time : 18:30-20:00
  • Location : Skills Matter, 1 Sekforde Street
  • Format : Presentation followed by a breakout for discussion, with further discussion in a local pub (The Crown).
  • Cost : Free, but registration is required.

Hi I'm a Paco (spanish) and I think that could be a good idea record the conference and the upload this video to Vimeo (or other service-video) (and if you like some of this services can add addsense to the video and you can earn some money). What you think about this?

Re: London User Group - May 2008

Hi Paco, we've recently started recording the audio from the sessions, and Skills Matter also make the video available on their site. The London User Group archives include links for all of the slides/audio/video, so keep an eye on this page for a link to the video for the last session.

Re: London User Group - May 2008

Thanks. I'll look the London User Group archives this weekend.
