Lock Free Queue Evolution Continued!
Presented by Nitsan Wakart (approx. 1 hour)

Two months ago Nitsan Wakart gave the Lock Free Queue Evolution talk to 120 LJC members at SkillMatters. While the talk got great feedback Nitsan was unable to fit the content to the time slot. This is the second part of that talk, though background will be covered and no prior knowledge is required. We will cover:

* 3 Concurrent Queue implementations and their lineage/relationships

* Cache misses and False Sharing

* Controlling Java objects memory layout

* Throughput and latency measurements on modern hardware

* and more :)

At the end of the talk a free drink will be offered to any finders of further optimizations ;-)

ppt presentation, some code will be reviewed.

Why should I attend:

To gain an insight into lock free concurrency and performance improvements.

Who shoud attend:

Anyone with a passion for concurrency, performance or both.

The subject is potentially suited to undergrads
