Concurrency and Performance Reloaded

February 23, 2010 @ 6:30pm – Concurrency & High Performance Reloaded (Special Meeting)

Directions: [http://www.marriott.com/hotels/maps/travel/atlpc-atlanta-marriott-perimeter-center/]

Description

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.

Thanks to [GCA Technology|http://www.gca.net/sun/just-added/new-courses-added/EXL-2025] and Sun for providing the speaker. Kirk will be in Atlanta as part of Sun’s Extreme Learning Program, [Learn More|http://www.sun.com/training/expert.html].

Building and Deploying 12 Factor Apps in Scala and Java

June 20, 2017

The twelve-factor app is a modern methodology for building software-as-a-service apps:

• Use declarative formats for setup automation, to minimise time and cost for new developers joining the project.

• Have a clean contract with the underlying operating system, offering maximum portability between execution environments.

• Are suitable for deployment on modern cloud platforms, obviating the need for servers and systems administration.

• Minimise divergence between development and production, enabling continuous deployment for maximum agility.

• And can scale up without significant changes to tooling, architecture, or development practices.

We will build a RESTful web service in Java and deploy the app to CloudFoundry. We will go over how to build a cloud manifest, how to keep our database credentials and application configuration outside of our code by using user-provided services and go over what it takes to build a 12 Factor application in the cloud. This presentation will be heavy on code and light on slides!
