Performance Tuning with Poor Tools and Cheap Drink
The session will start with a very quick introduction to jPDM, a performance diagnostic model designed to help quickly identify the root cause of performance bottlenecks. Bring you laptop with an installed version of Java 8 because after the introduction to and a quick demo of jPDM, you’ll get a chance to try the methodology out for yourself by using it to diagnose a small app that has been bobby trapped with a few commonly seen performance bottlenecks.
Hands-on session talk: 90 minutes long, code heavy, practical session
Kirk has been working in high performance and distributed computing for more than 25 years working with small devices to supercomputers, from single threaded applications with low latency requirements to large clusters with high loads. Kirk specializes in Java™where he created jPDM, a comprehensive performance tuning methodology aimed that has helped 1000s of developers become more effective at identifying critical performance bottlenecks in their applications. Kirk's contributions to the Java community resulted in him being named among early Java Champions in 2006.
