SF Java presentation of jvm goes to big data.
“Slowly yet surely the JVM is going to Big Data! In this fun filled presentation we see what pieces of Java & JVM triumph or unravel in the battle for performance at high scale!”
Concurrency is the currency of scale on multi-core & the new generation of collections and non-blocking hashmaps are well worth the time taking a deep dive into. We take a quick look at the next gen serialization techniques as well as implementation pitfalls around UUID. The achilles' heel for JVM remains Garbage Collection: a deep dive into the internals of the memory model, common GC algorithms and their tuning knobs is always a big draw. EC2 & cloud present us with a virtualized & unchartered territory for scaling the JVM.
We will leave some room for Q&A or fill it up with any asynchronous I/O that might queue up during the talk. A round of applause will be due to the various tools that are essentials for Java performance debugging.
