# Let’s build GPT: from scratch, in code, spelled out

Andrej Karpathy’s lecture:

We build a Generatively Pretrained Transformer (GPT), following the paper “Attention is All You Need” and OpenAI’s GPT-2 / GPT-3. We talk about connections to ChatGPT, which has taken the world by storm. We watch GitHub Copilot, itself a GPT, help us write a GPT (meta :D!)

# Developing the Bloomberg Terminal

A good talk by Paul Williams describing the internals of the Bloomberg Terminal software:

It combines a highly-scalable, proprietary data processing technology written in C++ with an embedded Chromium browser core and its V8 JavaScript engine. The result is a challenging, distributed run-time environment that must perform well and be measurable. The talk will cover some of the techniques used to develop and instrument this system.
