Next week will once again be a busy one for our experts. Some will be traveling to New York City for a meetup, others to Paris for a conference -- and still others who will be online for a live webinar. On April 25, GridGain experts will be at Trade Tech Europe in Paris, where attendees can network and benchmark with some 1,000 senior equity trading professionals from the “who’s who” of the global equity trading community.

Unfortunately for our technology evangelist, he’ll likely encounter rain as he traverses the Washington, D.C. metro area next week speaking at four cool meetups. But then again, Akmal Chaudhri is from London so he’s used to wet weather. At least the cherry blossoms are now starting to bloom there.  But first, I wanted to share a…
