Venkat Subramaniam presents Concurrency without Pain


Programming concurrency has turned into a herculean task. I call the traditional approach as the synchronized and suffer model. Fortunately, there are other approaches to concurrency and you can reach out to those directly from your Java code.

In this presentation we will discuss the actor based concurrency and also the software transaction memory. We will then develop examples using AKKA and compare the power of these approaches in contrast to the traditional approach.

    Venkat was an excellent presenter. He was energetic and animated while he presented. He kept the audience engaged the whole time. He was also good at explaining the main concurrency topics with creative analogies to help our comprehension. I think it's the best technical presentation I've seen in quite some time!

    CJUG looks like we're going to have a great turnout tonight. We've recently passed 500 members and no doubt one of the reasons we get such great speakers is due to the fact that we're one of the biggest JUGs in the country. I've seen a lot of additions to the guest list without an official RSVP. Please do take the time to register as a CJUG members through Meetup so we can continue to flex out muscles to bring in these great speakers.

    He gave this talk in Austin a few months back. Towards the end he talked about some new stuff in Java 8, and I found that to be very interesting.

    I have seen Venkat at several NFJS events and he is absolutely phenomenal. He is an outstanding programmer, and entertaining speaker, and he will sit down next to you and start pair programming if you like. This will be my first CJUG meeting and I wouldn't miss it.
