Re: What's the optimal strategy to this food transportation problem?

The distance between city A and B  is 100 km. The total food needs to move from A to B is 3 tons. A transportation team can carry food 1 ton per day and at the same time consumes food 0.25 tons per day. Then how to setup transfer stations between city A nd B to minimize food consumption during tran...

Re: Random quotes

Unless one is just a sucker for C++, it needs to be considered that the C++ code development time is several times longer than in the case of Python.
Probably until your Python code base reaches the tipping point and then get Big Ball of Muds.

C# is 3 times more productive than C++.
Why 3?

Re: Random quotes

Not my field, but I thought that a lot of the action in this space had moved to FPGAs. 
Iterative development on FPGAs is a pain. And there are many trades which don't really need an FPGA.

Re: Random quotes

Me? Several microseconds latency.
Dunno about the Perl/KDB guys.

Re: Random quotes

When I worked in HFT, I wrote a lot of Python code, but not a single line of C++ code.

I knew people who wrote HFT trading models in Perl or KDB.

Re: Trump -- the last 100 days

No plan necessary. Just a sequence of events:
- Qatar gives a bribe to Trump via one of his investment vehicles
- Trump does something for Qatar
etc.

Re: Trump -- the last 100 days

These are not unrelated things. Trump and his friends are not damaging the world just for the fun of it, they're being paid for it. Follow the money (and cut off their flow). This is one thing which the Communists have got right in theory, though they never really implemented it: "Money will never b...

Re: Top Inventions

Quant finance is over, the current tech du jour which is supposed to save us is AI. Both stem from the same dream: to dump difficult decision making on machines.

Re: Are you ready for Brexit?

Why would no-deal Brexit be necessarily followed by a constitutional crisis?
PM Corbyn would not be ideal, but an improvement over the current lot. McDonnell seems a clever guy to me.

Re: Trump -- the last 100 days

I guess the precedent here is  Nixon He resigned before impeachment and was given a full pardon and immunity from criminal prosecution by his successor, no? If the the objective of the Democrats is to oust Trump and reverse what he has done then Pelosi’s stance seems logical. Especially given the r...
