Best Youtube videos on C++ HFT development integrated development environment aka IDE is Eclipse CDT for Windows Cygwin and Ubuntu Linux
My view is to develop with Windows Cywin but deploy eventual onto target system on a Linux distribution like Ubuntu or Red Hat/CentOS. I would even look at Debian as that is a pure distribution.
You need to make sure the C++ code is can be cross compiled with the GCC on both WIndows and Linux.FACEBOOK ACCOUNT and TWITTER. Don't worry as I don't post stupid cat videos or what I eat!
