Bloomberg’s Software Infrastructure Application Frameworks group is known to the rest of the Engineering community for building libraries, development environments and services used by most Terminal application developers. And as important as that is, there is even more to this organization. We are also responsible for delivering software installed on clients’ desktops and for the tools used to deploy and automate portions of the build process. We create the core Terminal software that runs on all client PCs, and facilitates connection and access to the vast array of Bloomberg applications available within our environment. Part of this software includes the client run-time to render all of our terminal applications.
In addition, we also own the IDEs and tools used to develop, profile, debug, and release applications, along with real-time deployment, distribution, and monitoring infrastructure for the platform. We maintain the tools and infrastructure performance through heavily investing in optimization, metrics, and monitoring of all layers of the platform, as well as continuous integration and regression testing aimed at catching performance degradation before they enter release.
