On October 10, Azul’s CTO Gil Tene will give a presentation at the Orange County JUG about how to get the most out of your hardware, preceded by a brief look ahead at the future of Java.
The Java world is in the midst of a tectonic shift. With dramatic changes to the pace of feature introduction, release lifecycles, compatibility policies, security update policies, and the required pace of adoption in production all happening at the same time, the world ahead will look nothing like what you may have gotten used to. Gil will provide a quick overview of what developers and operational people need to know if Java is part of their world.
Getting the most of your Java applications can be an interesting challenge. Understanding some of the optimizations the latest crop of JVMs is able to apply when running on the latest servers may help with that. This talk will discuss some of those features and optimizations. Along with discussing some JIT compiler capabilities, Gil will take a look at the evolution of Intel-based server platforms, quickly traversing through features that were introduced over the past few years. He will demonstrate some examples of JVM JITs using these capabilities where available, as they adapt the code they generate to the specific processors they run on.
