Workshop: "Low Latency Communications"

Time: Wednesday 09:00 - 16:00 / Location: Gleacher Center 1

In this all day workshop, join Martin and Todd as they highlight some of the problems and solutions involved in designing and implementing low latency communicating systems. They will use the Simple Binary Encoding (SBE) and the low latency messaging transport, Aeron, to illustrate the common protocols of interaction that can be of use to every developer.

You will learn how to:

(1) lay out data formats to take advantage of modern CPU hardware

(2) use Simple Binary Encoding (SBE) to quickly and efficiently format complex data that can evolve

(3) learn what is involved in designing protocols of interaction

(4) use Aeron to stitch together complex systems efficiently

(5) learn how best to benchmark communicating systems
