October 2009
Andreas Meyer, Cologne: "Acceleration" of the application for creation, test and execution of trading strategies (C++, Multithreading, OpenMP, Stored Procedures)

The application written in Visual Basic was extended by a "virtual broker", so that off-line tests of commercial strategies became possible. After that, however, the implementing VB turned out too slow to carry out extensive parameter tests. Therefore, the complete application (except the user interface) was ported to C++. On this occasion, value was placed of 1:1 translation, because the code VB had turned out to be very reliable.
Now the application runs approx. 100 times faster than before. More improvements were achieved by the application of the Multithreading Library OpenMP (support of multicore processors) as well as the paging of arithmetic-intensive preprocessing in server-sided Stored Procedures.

Studies: "Hessischer Rundfunk", Frankfurt a. M. (Germany). Development of the computer control unit (hardware 6809, programming with Crosscompiler in C)

Development of a remote control for an availabe measuring point change over switch. On the Basis of a PC-Card 6809 a command unit was created whereby in arrangement with the staff of the "Hessischer Rundfunk" a great importance was attached to good operability. The unit communicates with the change over switch by a serial line. Its function had to be coordinated with the IEC-bus control of the change-over switch.
