Hi AustinJUG,

Please join us next Tuesday night at VISA to hear two local senior Java developers, Kunal Sinha and Alex Kluge, speak on overcoming concurrency pitfalls and performance and diagnostic tools in OpenJDK 11.

The VISA meeting room is located in Building III at 12301 Research Blvd. Building III is the one with the Visa logo on the top. Folks will need to bring a photo ID to check in. All parking is free, both in the lot in front and in the garage in the back.

Please RSVP so that you can be pre-registered and to order a sufficient amount of pizza. Please ensure that your account lists your first and last name so we can provide that to VISA. Otherwise, you can register when you arrive at VISA.

Pizza and drinks will be served at 6:30 PM and the meeting will begin at 7:00 PM.

Hope to see you on March 26th!


Common Concurrency Pitfalls and How To Avoid Them
While concurrency offers a solution to larger problems, it brings its own share of caveats. In this talk we will discuss common pitfalls and how to avoid them. The talk will discuss common issues that may show up in the production code and how to mitigate that.

About Kunal Sinha
Kunal is a software engineer working in the area of identity and access management. Previously he worked at Sun Microsystems and Oracle where he was responsible for architecting and leading the effort for LDAP services. At present, he is working for Okta where he is engaged in developing cloud-based IDM solutions.

Performance and Diagnostic Tools in OpenJDK 11
The Java Flight Recorder(JFR) is an extremely low overhead tool suitable for continuous data collection in a production environment. The JFR was previously a commercially licensed option to the JDK, however, it is now part of the OpenJDK and available for wider use. We will explore the JFR and its companion Java Mission Control(JMC) to explore the opportunities they present for performance tuning and monitoring in development and production environments.

About Alex Kluge
Alex is a highly seasoned software professional whose work in scientific computing and visualization stretches from his early career at Princeton University and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory through his term as the Assistant Director of The Center for Instructional Technologies at The University of Texas at Austin. This passion, and the drive to make a difference, continues in the present day with Vizit Solutions focusing on the application of scientific computing and visualization techniques to instruction.
