Book Description

C++ is meticulously designed with efficiency, performance, and flexibility as its core objectives. However, real-time low latency applications demand a distinct set of requirements, particularly in terms of performance latencies.

With this book, you’ll gain insights into the performance requirements for low latency applications and the C++ features critical to achieving the required performance latencies. You’ll also solidify your understanding of the C++ principles and techniques as you build a low latency system in C++ from scratch.

You’ll understand the similarities between such applications, recognize the impact of performance latencies on business, and grasp the reasons behind the extensive efforts invested in minimizing latencies. Using a step-by-step approach, you’ll embark on a low latency app development journey by building an entire electronic trading system, encompassing a matching engine, market data handlers, order gateways, and trading algorithms, all in C++. Additionally, you’ll get to grips with measuring and optimizing the performance of your trading system.

By the end of this book, you’ll have a comprehensive understanding of how to design and build low latency applications in C++ from the ground up, while effectively minimizing performance latencies.
