Title: Concurrency and Performance Part 1

Speakers: Kirk Pepperdine

This is a video recording of JAVAWUG BOF that took place on Monday 23 June 2008 in London


Both Intel and Microsoft have recently said that we, as developers, need to start delivering more concurrency in our applications. How did we get here and what does it mean? In this talk, we will look at the trend towards more and more concurrent and and what this means for Java programmers. Can we expect that our Java applications will automatically take advantage of the extra processors, or will we need to become more aware of the hardware aspects of our system?


Kirk Pepperdine, Principle Consultant for Kodewerk Ltd, has been working in High Performance Computing and performance tuning systems for close to 20 years. Kirk has been nominated to the Java Champion program. He speaks regularly on topics related to performance. His latest talks have been about how to add rigor the performance tuning process to help improve consistancy of results and predicability of scheduling.
