Dr. Multithreading, or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Threads

Starting our Secondary Track we delve into one of the most missundazstood (isn't that a Pink album?) aspects of the Java language. We learn what are the reasons that Multithreading seems so hard to get right (curse you branch prediction!) and we start with a solid foundation on how to really 'get' it and stop worrying too much about it.

    A little bit to basic and lacking live demos.

    This was very cool. Especially multithreading, a topic where there is always room for advancement

    I was looking forward to this but will not be able to attend. Will the session be recorded.

    February 25, 2013

    • Freddy G.

      We will have the equipment. Barring any snafus we should have a recorded session

  • Freddy G.

    Been preparing the presentation and I think it will be pretty cool! We'll be talking about all the little details on how the CPU trip us when running code in a multithreaded environment, and how to protect and enhance our programs!

    I plan to attend. If this changes I hope to be able to cancel to keep you up to date.
