Did you know that light travels 30 centimeters in a vacuum in 1 nanosecond, but only 20 centimeters through an optical thread? Do you know why this is important for high frequency trading? What do you think is the fastest way of electronic communication? Optical thread? Almost never. Copper wire? Sometimes. Microwave radio? Often. But can we go even faster? Can we actually measure reliably how fast we actually are?

Why do companies use C++ for their software? What are the differences between theory and practice in reducing latency? How long do standard actions take on a modern computer?

Come to DRW's presentation and find out. Did we mention they also use lasers?
