Abstract

The Disruptor was announced 10 years ago. A concurrent library for the Java programming language which provided a low-latency, high-throughput means to do asynchronous event processing as a central component to the LMAX's architecture.

In the 10 years since Disruptor, Financial Exchange Architectures have continued to evolve. In this talk, Martin Thompson, then the co-founder and CTO for LMAX who created Disruptor, discusses what's happened since. He will look at the evolution of financial exchanges and explore what is considered state of the art today.
