Azul’s CTO Gil Tene will speak on two topics at this event:
Java: Get ready for an exciting but stormy 2019 The Java world is in the midst of 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. In the short talk, Gil Tene (CTO, Azul Systems) will provide a quick overview of what developers and operational people need to know if Java is part of their world.
Java at Speed: Get the Most out of Modern Hardware Getting the most of your Java applications can be an interesting challenge. Understanding some of the optimizations the latest crop of JVMs are 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, we will take a look at the evolution of Intel-based server platforms, quickly traversing through features that were introduced over the past few years. We 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.
