TE3: Electronic Trading

On June 10th, 2017 Bob Van Valzah of Sun Trading shared a piece of his Saturday with us to discuss Electronic Trading using a number of real-world examples. We kept the conversation intentionally light, and Bob explained how trading works in terms that nearly everyone should be able to comprehend. During our chat, we touched on high-frequency traders, market making, dark pools, what is arbitrage, and the race to zero. So sit back and learn a bit about how our markets work.

TE4: Performance Packet Capture

On June 20th, 2017 I had the chance to catch up with Ramzi Zabaneh who has nearly a decade of experience marketing high-performance network packet capture devices. We talked about the current and future challenges facing network packet capture, what is lossless capture, and where the industry is headed.

TE1: Hadoop and Security

On June 8th, 2017 Ron Miller of Cloudwick joined us to go deep on Hadoop and Securing Hadoop Clusters. Ron is a member of the CTO staff at Cloudwick, and he’s been an industry leader in security for over two decades. I was fortunate enough to work with Ron for several years while he was with Solarflare, and we’ve remained friends since his departure. In 2015 we had the opportunity to work Black Hat and attend DEFCON together, and it was amazing to hear his perspective on the security products and events.

TE0: The Teaser

June 1, 2017 – For over three decades Scott has been focused on explaining computing in terms non-engineers can grasp. From convincing his parent in 1983 why he should spend $750 on TRS-80 Model III while still in college to how ultra-low latency networking plays a significant role in electronic stock trading.

The goal of this Podcast is to bring technology leaders to the mic to explain the latest innovations, sometimes in terms, everyone can understand. I can’t guarantee we won’t nerd out every now and then, it’s in our nature, but we will cover leading-edge technologies, and products often not discussed in more consumer focused forums.
