Title: Java at Scale – What Works and What Doesn’t Work Nearly so Well

Speaker: Hank Shiffman, Product Manager, Azul Systems

Abstract: Java gets used everywhere and for everything due to its efficiency, portability, the productivity it offers developers, and the platform it provides for application frameworks and non-Java languages.  But all is not perfect; developers both benefit from and struggle against Java’s greatest strength: its memory management.  In this session, Hank will describe where Java needs help, the challenges it presents developers who need to provide reliable performance, the reasons those challenges exist, and how developers have traditionally worked around them.  He will then discuss new, innovative Java technology available to tackle performance issues and how this technology addresses the prior mismatch between Java and big data.
