Anthony Malakian, US editor of Waters, and James Rundle, news editor of Waters, record a weekly podcast touching on the biggest stories in financial technology.

 

This week, Anthony and James look at Anthony’s feature on the proliferation of JavaScript frameworks. They then discuss the CFTC’s announcement this week that it is going to conduct a review of its swaps data reporting rules. Finally, they wrap things up by discussing Donald Trump Jr., and his disclosure of emails linking him to a Russian lawyer. While James is basically a socialist, Anthony is a conservative—and even he is losing his mind about where his country is heading, politically speaking. 

1:00 A quick update on next week’s Waters Rankings announcement, and the Mifid II event in London.
1:45 How the JavaScript feature came about.
3:45 The problem: Too many frameworks and libraries to choose from
8:00 The balancing act of keeping both young and older programmers happy and engaged. 
10:00 Lessons learned for CTOs.
12:25 The CFTC announcement and what it means.
14:00 What the revision process will look like.
15:00 A timeline of what is supposed to come next, though James and Anthony are skeptical.
18:00 A rant on Donald Trump Jr., and the state of political discourse in the United States.
