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.

The Power of Collaboration: Kx and Thomson Reuters

What defines a great collaboration? Kx’s Chief Revenue Officer Pat Brazel writes in this blog about our current Kx and Thomson Reuters partnership. Over the past 12 months Kx and Thomson Reuters’ domain experts, and engineers have jumped into the Velocity Analytics 8 product development process with good faith and real enthusiasm. Out of that has come a product delivery, roadmap and sales strategy that both companies are proud of. To both firms credit, we seem to have avoided the dreaded “not-invented-here” syndrome. Both companies have brought the best of their technologies together to create a product which builds on, and exceeds, the foundation on which it is built.
