CJUG Lunch & Learn: Uber-Famous Jack Shirazi Presents "Java Performance Tuning"

Ever wanna know why one sort is sooo much faster than another?  What if its only a second a cycle?  Do you ever ponder why one collection or variable implemented a certain way will cause it to be ten times as slow?  Well Jack Shiraz not only thought about it, he wrote a book about it plus adding a little thing we like to call math to prove his points!  Now the funny part?  He did it almost 10 years ago (called 'Java Performance Tuning' - still considered bible of tuning to this day)!  Imagine what a uber-smart guy like Jack is doing NOW?  No need to imagine, he has agreed to do a presentation for CJUG (something he has been too busy with paying clients to do for many, many years).  All that being said, Jack is cool and smart - plus he lives in London.  The presentation is at NOON-ish - well really 12:30 actually, to allow Jack some normal sleep time and avoid his travel time (yup, its our first simulcast)!

Why attend?  What to tell da boss?  Well, if coding faster running programs saves time and money (and memory), this one will be a HUGE payback for your invested time and to your client/employer/tutor/friend and dog.....

    It was odd that the presenter and host were not synchronized about the length of the presentation.

    I was a little disappointed that the talk exceeded the advertised time. I feel that with a little better structuring and preparation, the majority of the talk could have been covered within the stipulated hour, and would have benefited those of us who were there in our lunch hour. I was a bit surprised that the speaker did not know this was a 1 hour talk beforehand.

    Unfortunately, I missed everything after 1:30 PM. Oh well.

    I really enjoyed the talk. I wish it would have lasted longer as I wanted to hear more tuning tips. Can he come back and speak again? Here is the slides link :

    Good focus on specific areas of threads and gc. Where can we locate the presentation ppt? Is it available online? Thanks again for a great JUG event. Much appreciated.
