OpenWorld and JavaOne slides available for download

Thanks everyone who attended my talks last week. My slides for OpenWorld and JavaOne are available for download:

Presenting at JavaOne and Oracle Open World

Once again I'll be presenting at Oracle Open World, and JavaOne. You can search the full catalogue on the web. The details of my two talks are:

Engineering Insights: Best Practices for Optimizing Oracle Software for Oracle Hardware [CON8108]

Oracle Solaris Studio is an indispensable toolset for optimizing key Oracle software running on Oracle hardware. This presentation steps through a series of case studies from real Oracle applications, illustrating how the various Oracle Solaris Studio development tools have proven instrumental in ensuring that Oracle software is fully tuned and optimized for Oracle hardware. Learn the secrets of how Oracle uses these powerful compilers and performance, memory, and thread analysis tools to write optimal, well-tested enterprise code for Oracle hardware, and hear about best practices you can use to optimize your existing applications for the latest Oracle systems.

Java Performance: Hardware, Structures, and Algorithms [CON2654]

Many developers consider the deployment platform to be a black box that the JVM abstracts away. In reality, this is not the case. The characteristics of the hardware do have a measurable impact on the performance of any Java application. In this session, two Java Rock Star presenters explore how hardware features influence the performance of your application. You will not only learn how to measure this impact but also find out how to improve the performance of your applications by writing hardware-friendly code.

JavaOne award

I was thrilled to get a JavaOne 2013 Rockstar Award for Charlie Hunt's and my talk "Performance tuning where Java meets the hardware".

Getting the award was a surprise and a great honour. It's based on audience feedback, so it's really nice to find out that the audience enjoyed hearing the presentation as much as I enjoyed giving it.

My Oracle Open World and JavaOne schedule

I've got my schedule for Oracle Open World and JavaOne:

Note that on Thursday I have about 30 minutes between my two talks, so expect me to rush out of the database talk in order to get to the Java talk.

JavaOne and Oracle Open World 2013

I'll be up at both JavaOne and Oracle Open World presenting. I have a total of three presentations:

  • Mixed-Language Development: Leveraging Native Code from Java
  • Performance Tuning Where Java Meets the Hardware
  • Developing Efficient Database Applications with C and C++

I'm excited by these opportunities - particularly working with Charlie Hunt diving into Java Performance.

CON6714 - Mixed-Language Development: Leveraging Native Code from Java

Here's the abstract from my JavaOne talk:

There are some situations in which it is necessary to call native code (C/C++ compiled code) from Java applications. This session describes how to do this efficiently and how to performance-tune the resulting applications.

The objectives for the session are:

  • Explain reasons for using native code in Java applications
  • Describe pitfalls of calling native code from Java
  • Discuss performance-tuning of Java apps that use native code

I'll cover how to call native code from Java, debugging native code, and then I'll dig into performance tuning the code. The talk is not going too deep on performance tuning - focusing on the JNI specific topics; I'll do a bit more about performance tuning in my OpenWorld talk later in the day.

Monday, 1st October: Presenting at JavaOne and Oracle Open World

On Monday 1 October I will be presenting at both JavaOne and Oracle Open World. The full conference schedule is available from here. The logistics for my sessions are as follows:


  • JavaOne: 8:30am Monday 1 October. CON6714: "Mixed-Language Development: Leveraging Native Code from Java". San Francisco Hilton - Continental Ballroom 6
  • Oracle OpenWorld: 10:45am Monday 1 October. CON6382: "Maximizing Your SPARC T4 Oracle Solaris Application Performance". Marriott Marquis - Golden Gate C3

Hope to see you there!

Audio for JavaOne interview available

A couple of weeks back I recorded an interview where I discussed The Developer's Edge. I've just found the audio up at BlogTalkRadio, it's about 15 minutes in duration.
