To co-incide with the next Oracle Developer Day on Wednesday 14th November, we'll be moving our regular meetup one week later.
The meetup informally begins straight at the end of the dev day (5:30pm) with a networking drinks session at Cliftons Melbourne (1/440 Collins Street Melbourne) thanks to Oracle.
We'll then move off to Shine Technologies (Level 27/303 Colins Street, Melbourne) where we'll kick off regular proceedings from 6:30pm.
David Holmes from Oracle will be presenting the Fork / Join framework which takes concurrency on the JVM another step forward. You can see from David's Bio below he's heavily involved in this space and we're pretty lucky to have him present.
The event is open to everyone regardless of if they can make the dev day or they've been to a meetup prior.
- If you are going to the Oracle Dev Day, dont forget to register with Oracle. We'll see you at Clifton's at 5.30pm and move to Shine about 6:15.
- If you aren't going to the Dev Day, feel free to head straight to Shine for the 6.30pm start (if you finish work early and can make it to Cliftons your welcome to join us for drinks prior).
David Holmes Bio
Dr David Holmes has been working with the Java Platform since 1996, and has worked for Sun, then Oracle, since late 2005. He specialized in concurrency and synchronization, working closely with Professor Doug Lea, presenting concurrency tutorials at various international conferences. David was a member of the JSR-166 Expert Group that defined the initial java.util.concurrent Concurrency Utilities, and is a co-author of "Java Concurrency in Practice" by Brian Goetz et al. He was also co-author of "The Java Programming Language", third and fourth editions, with Ken Arnold and James Gosling. David was a member of the Technical Interpretation Committee for the Real-Time Specification for Java (RTSJ - JSR-001) and was heavily involved in producing the RTSJ 1.0.1 and 1.0.2 updates. He later served as a member of the Expert Group for JSR-282, which is defining RTSJ 1.1. While officially working on the Java SE Embedded product, David continues to dabble in the development of the Java language, libraries and virtual machine.
