  • High-Speed Database (Development)

    The project, for a hedge fund, involved creating a fault-tolerant database for a live currency feed. The challenging part of the project was that it needed to be both fast and fault tolerant.

The result was a brilliant piece of proprietary code with stability, scalability, and speed.
