February 23, 2010 @ 6:30pm – Concurrency & High Performance Reloaded (Special Meeting)
The move from single to multi-core is a silent revolution. It has happened without Java developers taking much notice. Part of this is because Java developers have been writing multi-threaded applications for a long time. Even so, multi-core is a game changing development and with a 1000 core CPUs on the event horizon, it’s one that we must adapt to if we are to remain competitive. In this talk we will explore some of the develop\- ments that are taking place in the JVM, and in the JDK, to help us online casino. We will also look at techniques we can use to improve the performance of our applications running on machines with 10s or even 100s of CPUs.
