Where did you hear about this group?

Through friends and colleagues. I'm speaking to the group on July 26th while on a visit to London, so I figured I'd join online.

How long have you been developing with Java?

17+ years.

What are your favourite technologies at the moment?

I focus on runtime technologies that make the actual JVM work "better". Lots around GC (especially in the low latency and/or large heap (whether it's >1GB or >100GB) heap areas), as well as locking (think transactional memory), JIT compilation (think escape-detection-directed-inlining-decision-and-optimization, and things like what-to-optimize-when-people-finally-settle-on-using-invokedynamic-in-a-consistent-way).

Would you be interested in hearing about any new Java permanent or contract positions at present? (if yes please add which would be of more interest)

Not really, I'm not local.


I spend a lot of time in front of computer screens. And some behind them.
