TechMeetups Bangalore is presenting free course

"High-Throughput Java Actors for Vertical Scaling"

by Bill la Forge


Computers with multiple CPUs have become common, especially for server-side applications. But writing applications that use threads and locks that make good use of this hardware can be quite a challenge. In comparison, actor-based programming is easy but have limited throughput.

We are bringing in William la Forge, specialist in JActor consulting to share his ideas. This talk covers JActor, a Java framework for actors that can pass 100 million messages per second between actors in the same JVM.

The course will cover three topics:

1. An overview of high-performance programming in Java

2. Techniques used by JActor to deliver high throughput

3. Code samples showing how to use JActor.


Q&A will follow after the lecture and it will be a good chance for you to have all of yours questions answered.

If you have any questions and suggestions, please contact me at [masked]
