  • ★★ How Long Does She Want You to Last? ★★ A recent study proved that the average man lasts just 2-5 minutes in bed (during intercourse). The study also showed that many women need at least 7-10 minutes of intercourse to reach "The Big O" - and, worse still... 30% of women never get there during intercourse. Clearly, most men are NOT fulfilling there women's needs in bed. Now, as I've said many times - how long you can last is no guarantee of being a GREAT LOVER. But, not being able to last 20, 30 minutes or more, is definitely a sign that you're not going to "set your woman's world on fire" between the sheets. Question is: "What can you do to last longer?" Well, one of the best recommendations I can give you today is to read THIS report. In it, you'll discover a detailed guide to an Ancient Taoist Thrusting Technique that can help any man to last much longer in bed. I can vouch 100% for the technique because my husband has been using it for years :) Here's the link to the report ◆◆◆

  13. 13. The Internet of Things has the potential to change the world, just as the Internet did. Maybe even more so.  Nearly 50 petabytes of data are captured and created by human beings  People have limited time, attention and accuracy  Capturing data about things in the real world in real time  Track and count everything, reduce waste, loss & cost.  Know when things need replacing, repairing or recalling — Kevin Ashton, 'That 'Internet of Things' Thing', RFID Journal, 2009 Internet of Things (IoT)
  14. 14.  There will be nearly 26 billion devices on the Internet of Things by 2020. [Gartner]  More than 30 billion devices will be wirelessly connected to the Internet of Things by 2020 [ABI Research]  It's expected to be a 19 Trillion USD market [John Chambers, Cisco CEO] IoT Perspectives
  15. 15. "Basket of remotes" problem – we'll have hundreds of applications to interface with hundreds of devices that don't share protocols for speaking with one another [Jean-Louis Gassée, Apple initial team, and BeOS co-founder] Only IPv6 addresses are not enough – IoT devices should be also easily and directly accessible for users and [their] agents In read/write mode Preferably using a standard web browser Even behind firewalls IoT - Need for Standards

  17. 17. Tracking Complexity 17 We need tools to cope with all that complexity inherent in robotics and IoT domains. Simple solutions are needed – cope with problems through divide and concur on different levels of abstraction: Domain Driven Design (DDD) – back to basics: domain objects, data and logic. Described by Eric Evans in his book: Domain Driven Design: Tackling Complexity in the Heart of Software, 2004
  18. 18. Common Sense: DDD 18 Main concepts:  Entities, value objects and modules  Aggregates and Aggregate Roots [Haywood]: value < entity < aggregate < module < BC  Repositories, Factories and Services: application services <-> domain services  Separating interface from implementation
  19. 19. Imperative and Reactive 19 We live in a Connected Universe ... there is hypothesis that all the things in the Universe are intimately connected, and you can not change a bit without changing all. Action – Reaction principle is the essence of how Universe behaves.
  20. 20. Imperative and Reactive  Reactive Programming: using static or dynamic data flows and propagation of change Example: a := b + c  Functional Programming: evaluation of mathematical functions, ➢ Avoids changing-state and mutable data, declarative programming ➢ Side effects free => much easier to understand and predict the program behavior. Example: -> book.getYear() > 2010) .forEach( System.out::println )
  21. 21. Functional Reactive (FRP) 21 According to Connal Elliot's (ground-breaking paper @ Conference on Functional Programming, 1997), FRP is: (a) Denotative (b) Temporally continuous

  25. 25. Reactive Streams Spec. 25  Reactive Streams – provides standard for asynchronous stream processing with non-blocking back pressure.  Minimal set of interfaces, methods and protocols for asynchronous data streams  April 30, 2015: has been released version 1.0.0 of Reactive Streams for the JVM (Java API, Specification, TCK and implementation examples)  Java 9: java.util.concurrent.Flow
  26. 26. Reactive Streams Spec. 26  Publisher – provider of potentially unbounded number of sequenced elements, according to Subscriber(s) demand. Publisher.subscribe(Subscriber) => onSubscribe onNext* (onError | onComplete)?  Subscriber – calls Subscription.request(long) to receive notifications  Subscription – one-to-one Subscriber ↔ Publisher, request data and cancel demand (allow cleanup).  Processor = Subscriber + Publisher
  27. 27. FRP = Async Data Streams 27  FRP is asynchronous data-flow programming using the building blocks of functional programming (e.g. map, reduce, filter) and explicitly modeling time  Used for GUIs, robotics, and music. Example (RxJava): Observable.from( new String[]{"Reactive", "Extensions", "Java"}) .take(2).map(s -> s + " : on " + new Date()) .subscribe(s -> System.out.println(s)); Result: Reactive : on Wed Jun 17 21:54:02 GMT+02:00 2015 Extensions : on Wed Jun 17 21:54:02 GMT+02:00 2015
  28. 28. 28  Performance is about 2 things (Martin Thompson – ): – Throughput – units per second, and – Latency – response time  Real-time – time constraint from input to response regardless of system load.  Hard real-time system if this constraint is not honored then a total system failure can occur.  Soft real-time system – low latency response with little deviation in response time  100 nano-seconds to 100 milli-seconds. [Peter Lawrey] What About High Performance?
  29. 29. 32  Low garbage by reusing existing objects + infrequent GC when application not busy – can improve app 2 - 5x  JVM generational GC startegy – ideal for objects living very shortly (garbage collected next minor sweep) or be immortal  Non-blocking, lockless coding or CAS  Critical data structures – direct memory access using DirectByteBuffers or Unsafe => predictable memory layout and cache misses avoidance  Busy waiting – giving the CPU to OS kernel slows program 2-5x => avoid context switches  Amortize the effect of expensive IO - blocking Low Latency: Things to Remember
  30. 30. 33  Non-blocking (synchronous) implementation is 2 orders of magnitude better then synchronized  We should try to avoid blocking and especially contended blocking if want to achieve low latency  If blocking is a must we have to prefer CAS and optimistic concurrency over blocking (but have in mind it always depends on concurrent problem at hand and how much contention do we experience – test early, test often, microbenchmarks are unreliable and highly platform dependent – test real application with typical load patterns)  The real question is: HOW is is possible to build concurrency without blocking? Mutex Comparison => Conclusions
  31. 31. 34  Message Driven – asynchronous message-passing allows to establish a boundary between components that ensures loose coupling, isolation, location transparency, and provides the means to delegate errors as messages [Reactive Manifesto].  The main idea is to separate concurrent producer and consumer workers by using message queues.  Message queues can be unbounded or bounded (limited max number of messages)  Unbounded message queues can present memory allocation problem in case the producers outrun the consumers for a long period → OutOfMemoryError Scalable, Massively Concurrent
  32. 32. 35  Queues typically use either linked-lists or arrays for the underlying storage of elements. Linked lists are not „mechanically sympathetic” – there is no predictable caching “stride” (should be less than 2048 bytes in each direction).  Bounded queues often experience write contention on head, tail, and size variables. Even if head and tail separated using CAS, they usually are in the same cache- line.  Queues produce much garbage.  Typical queues conflate a number of different concerns – producer and consumer synchronization and data storage Queues Disadvantages []
  33. 33. 36  LMAX Disruptor design pattern separates different concerns in a “mechanically sympathetic” way: - Storage of items being exchanged - Producer coordination – claiming the next sequence - Consumers coordination – notified new item is available  Single Writer principle is employed when writing data in the Ring Buffer from single producer thread only (no contention),  When multiple producers → CAS  Memory pre-allocated – predictable stride, no garbage LMAX Disruptor (RingBuffer) []

  36. 36. Project Reactor 39  Reactor project allows building high-performance (low latency high throughput) non-blocking asynchronous applications on JVM.  Reactor is designed to be extraordinarily fast and can sustain throughput rates on order of 10's of millions of operations per second.  Reactor has powerful API for declaring data transformations and functional composition.  Makes use of the concept of Mechanical Sympathy built on top of Disruptor / RingBuffer.
  37. 37. Project Reactor 40  Pre-allocation at startup-time  Message-passing structures are bounded  Using Reactive and Event-Driven Architecture patterns => non-blocking end-to-end flows, replies  Implement Reactive Streams Specification – efficient bounded structures requesting no more than capacity  Applies above features to IPC and provides non- blocking IO drivers that are flow-control aware  Expose a Functional API – organize their code in a side-effect free way, which helps you determine you are thread-safe and fault-tolerant

  66. 66. Takeaways: Why Go Reactive? 69 Benefits using Reactive Programming + DDD:  DDD helps to manage complexity in IoT and Robotics - many subsystems = sub-domains  Reactive Streams (Fluxes, Monos) = uni-directional data flows, CQRS, event sourcing, microservices  Reactive Streams can be non-blocking and highly efficient, or can utilize blocking if needed  Naturally implement state management patterns like Redux, allow time travel, replay and data analytics  Clear, declarative data transforms that scale (Map- Reduce, BigData, PaaS)
  67. 67. Takeaways: Why Maybe Not? 70 Cons using Reactive Programming + DDD:  DDD requires additional efforts to clearly separate different (sub) domains – DSL translators, factories...  Reactive Streams utilize functional composition and require entirely different mindset then imperative – feels like learning foreign language  Pure functions and Redux provide much benefits, but there's always temptation to “do it the old way” :)  Tool support for functional programming in Java is still not perfect (in Eclipse at least :)
