Welcome to BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT,Isle of Man Section website. Our section was created on the 7th of July 2004 as an international section of the BCS as per other jurisdictions such as Jersey, Guernsey, Switzerland and Hong Kong.

Our Section holds either a professional or social event each month from September to June. There may also be impromptu social events in July and August. Our events are normally open to non-members.

Our forthcoming events are published on our web site and if you happen to be on the Isle of Man at a time coinciding with an open event please join us. If you are a BCS member and regular visitor to the island or would like to register with the Section anyway, then please update your details held by the BCS.

Mauro Rappa – Linux, Network and Low Latency Expert

In the sometimes unreal world of algorithmic trading, dark pools, OTC and regulatory compliance, optimised infrastructures have never been so important. Mauro Rappa, a Linux and network expert, designs highly optimised systems to deal with real money and he has worked at RedHat technical support, LMAX low latency Forex exchange platform, Bloomberg at its real-time market data infrastructure and created the Squawker block trading infrastructure.

As a hardware hacker at heart, he founded ZeroLatency and developed TimePack to transparently monitor global network latency for any IP traffic over any network and provide an automated cloud SLA dashboard for infrastructure as a service clients. He will share insights on the financial latency race, tech startup innovation and let you hold the proof of concept that will enhance financial services, gambling and IPTV networks.
