Workshop: "Low Latency with Modern C++"

Time: Thursday 09:00 - 16:00 / Location: Room 2

This all day workshop highlights some of the unique challenges and opportunities around low latency systems with C++11 and onward. Of particular attention will be the communication aspects, including IPC, as well as the layout of data and marshaling. You will learn how to: (1) use modern development tools such as CMake and Google Mock, (2) use the Aeron C++ API, (3) determine when the Simple Binary Encoding (SBE) codecs make sense and when not, (4) determine if std::atomic is the right or wrong thing to use, and (5) access Java Memory Model semantics in C++.
