An introduction to FINOS and how we help you contribute to Fintech Open Source
James McLeod will give an introduction to FINOS - Fintech Open Source Foundation. Learn more about what they are focusing on, how they can help you contribute to Fintech Open Source and where you might want to get involved.
Why we choose React for a Large Scale Financial Trading Platform
In this talk, Keith Bloom will illustrate why React is increasingly being leveraged to build zero-failure trading platforms, for the biggest investment banks and financial institutions in the world. We'll start from altitude, looking across multiple teams spanning hundreds of developers - we'll talk about how React's simple APIs and no-hassle frameworks specifically accelerates development for the biggest trading platforms. We'll then zoom in gradually all the way through to the experience of an individual developer, all while illustrating the points throughout with hard-core technical examples.
