every day, the kitchen is stocked, and discussions are always lively. Teaching and learning are central activities
through classes, mentoring and discussion.
Jane Street is hiring interns and graduates for Trading and Technology roles for our Hong Kong office. We invite all
students (undergraduate, masters, doctoral) looking to utilize their quantitative and technical skills in a trading
environment to attend our on-campus events!
Technology Talk – “Abstractions and Types for Concurrent Programming”
Date & time: Monday November 21, 2016 at 10:30am – 11:30am
Location: Computer Science Dept. Building E3-1 #1501 (정보전자동 1층 제1공동강의실)
Target audience: Computer Science & Software Engineering students
Concurrent programming is the art of coordinating multiple processes into a single program, and is a pervasive part
of practical programming. It's also hard to do well, in part because good abstractions for concurrent programming
are hard to come by. This talk discusses /Async/, a concurrent programming library for OCaml, a statically typed
functional language in the ML family. We'll discuss how Async compares to other approaches to concurrent
programming, and how we leverage OCaml's type system to build high-quality abstractions for concurrency, without
modification to the underlying language.
We'll also discuss how our approach to concurrent programming has evolved over the last decade, and what aspects
of the API have turned out to be problematic.

“What's an Estimathon" you ask?! It's a team contest where the goal is to create confidence intervals to difficult math
and science questions. e.g., what's the volume of the earth's oceans (in cubic km); or, how many prime number
contain strictly increasing digits. It's a very interactive game, and focuses on some ideas that are central to what we
do at Jane Street: thinking about hard problems, assessing confidence levels, trying to strike a balance between
quick-and-rough estimates versus more refined solutions. The game is pretty mathematically driven, but we welcome
anyone interested in giving it a shot!
