This month's topic: Java Performance, the Lifecycle Approach: The Game Has Changed

Java Enterprise Performance Tuning typically is viewed as someone else's job.

QA will do it.
Operations will figure it out.
Isn't the Dev guys supposed to find these things?
But in fact it can and should be done across the lifecycle.

We will explore this new concept and other topics such as:
# GC diagnosis while under load
# Is my Framework doing what I want?
# Hello? Is this thing (caching) on?
# Who's your daddy? (How do services really interact)


Speaker: Joe Hoffman

Joe Hoffman has been designing, building and debugging Enterprise Applications for over 25 yrs, the last 11yrs in Java. He currently specializes in resolving complex performance problems for large enterprise customers across the globe. He holds a Bachelors in Computer Science and a Masters in Software Engineering but still has a blinking VCR clock. When not walking his dog, he can be found usually losing another game of racquetball.


PJUG meetings start with some time to eat and socialize (pizza and beverages are provided), followed by the featured speaker, then Q&A, discussion, sometimes a drawing to give away swag. :)

Though we like knowing how many people to expect, you don't *have* to RSVP, on Upcoming or otherwise. Go ahead and just show up!

Many people also go for a drink and further discussion following the meeting, at a location determined ad hoc (lately, the Market Street Pub at 10th and Market: http://mcmenamins.com/index.php?loc=24 ).
