Looking back in the archives, we found this gem, an interview with Simon Garland, Kx Chief Strategist, about kdb+ and high frequency trading. It’s been a few years, but the facts are pretty much the same, except for some enhancements to kdb+ that make it even faster.

We’re luring Simon down to sea level from his aerie in the Swiss Alps next month to talk about the latest and greatest in kdb+. Come to the Kx Community NYC Meetup on September 23rd and check it out.


Kdb+ Mastermind Challenge

Kdb+ Mastermind Challenge

4 Oct 2017 | , , , , ,

The Kx Community NYC Meetup recently competed in a Mastermind coding competition moderated by expert kdb+ programmer Nick Psaris, author of the book “Q Tips: Fast, Scalable and Maintainable Kdb+.” The top four solutions were notable for the completely different approaches they took. Mastermind is a popular code-breaking game introduced in 1975 that pits a “codemaker” against a “codebreaker.” The “code,” represented by four pegs chosen from a universe of 6 colors, is picked by the “codemaker.” The “codebreaker” continually makes 4-peg guesses and is told by the “codemaker” how many are the correct color in the correct position, and how many are the correct color in the wrong position.
