Protocol Buffers is a binary serialization format and technology, released to the open source community by Google in 2008.
Its primary use is to produce small fast binary representations of a 'message' or object for serialization or transportation.
There are various implementations of Protocol Buffers in .NET. This project is a fairly close port of the Google Java implementation.
There are two main parts:
tools/protoc.exe, which takes the textual representation of the protocol buffer and turns it into a binary representation for use with ProtoGen.exe.
tools/ProtoGen.exe, which takes binary representations of protocol buffer descriptors (as generated by the "stock" protoc binary supplied by Google) and creates C# source code. This is only required at build time.
lib/*/Google.ProtocolBuffers.dll, which is a supporting library. This is required at execution time.
lib/*/Google.ProtocolBuffers.Serialization.dll, a supplementary library that provides extensions for reading and writing protocol buffers to xml, json, and others.

Trading Technologies TT.NET SDK TT.NET SDK includes an Application Programming Interface (API) for the TT platform that provides developers the ability to create applications that communicate with the TT platform . Specifically, applications can subscribe for prices, route orders, and receive fills. TT.NET SDK is based on Microsoft .NET technology. And it's interface was designed to duplicate the interface of the X_TRADER platform's TT API to minimize migration efforts. TT.NET SDK also provides: - Improved performance and scalability - Integration with Microsoft Visual Studio, including Intellisense and built-in documentation - Support for multi-threaded application development It also provides a single, normalized interface for interacting with all exchanges supported by Trading Technologies.
