About this Guided Project

Learn step-by-step

In a video that plays in a split-screen with your work area, your instructor will walk you through these steps:

  2. Use pointer types to manage and update the order book efficiently

  3. Implement price notifications using fixed and moveable variables with the fixed statement

  4. Apply unsafe code concepts to simulate incoming orders and modify them with low latency

  5. Use pointer conversions and arithmetic to manage order fulfilment efficiently

  6. Implement trade reporting using fixed-size buffers and stackalloc for efficient memory allocation

  7. Integrate all learned concepts to implement real-time order cancellation requests using unsafe code

Recommended experience

Intermediate skills in OOP, .NET, Visual Studio and understanding of memory allocation and data structures
