Douglas Hawkins has been passionately developing software for the past 10 years, creating applications for bioinformatics, finance, and retail.
However, Doug’s true interest has always been in exploring and explaining the low-levels inside the virtual machines that we use everyday. To make byte code more accessible, he created the open-source Java Assembler Kit (JAK) which provides a fluent API for producing Java byte code and includes a REPL to allow for interactive experimentation.
Recently, Doug moved to Sunnyvale CA to pursue his interest in VMs full-time as a VM Engineer at Azul Systems.
Doug frequently brings his speaking skills to the No Fluff Just Stuff Circuit, and he’s appeared at Uberconf, StrangeLoop, Bay Area JUG, Archcon, and many more.
Meet us for pizza and light drinks starting at 6:30PM — Doug’s talk starts at 7:00. RSVP at the Meetup website.
