What we're about

The MelbJVM group discusses the Java Virtual Machine (JVM). Topics covered are frameworks and languages on the platform.

Many of our members are software developers using the Java language and looking to find out what's new, and what they can bring to their own projects, bringing up to date techniques and software technologies to the perennial development platform.

Some of our past topics to illustrate this:-

Emerging JVM languages (Redline Smalltalk (https://www.meetup.com/Melbourne-Java-JVM-Users-Group/events/97752052/), Whiley (https://www.meetup.com/Melbourne-Java-JVM-Users-Group/events/109159402/), Kotlin (https://www.meetup.com/Melbourne-Java-JVM-Users-Group/events/143189722/)) and more prevalent JVM languages (Groovy, Clojure (https://www.meetup.com/Melbourne-Java-JVM-Users-Group/events/116283292/), Scala)

Hardware interop with LeapMotion (https://www.meetup.com/Melbourne-Java-JVM-Users-Group/events/133318892/) and RasberryPi (https://www.meetup.com/Melbourne-Java-JVM-Users-Group/events/140852482/)

Lambda workshop (https://www.meetup.com/Melbourne-Java-JVM-Users-Group/events/140852482/) (Java 8)

Deploying webapps to the cloud and QoS (Cloudbees (https://www.meetup.com/Melbourne-Java-JVM-Users-Group/events/61618692/), JInspired.com (https://www.meetup.com/Melbourne-Java-JVM-Users-Group/events/70796702/))

Buildtools (Gradle (https://www.meetup.com/Melbourne-Java-JVM-Users-Group/events/133318892/))

Android Workshop (https://www.meetup.com/Melbourne-Java-JVM-Users-Group/events/109159482/)

Enterprise/Web frameworks (Spring (https://www.meetup.com/Melbourne-Java-JVM-Users-Group/events/133510742/), Vert.x (https://www.meetup.com/Melbourne-Java-JVM-Users-Group/events/70482282/), JavaEE (https://www.meetup.com/Melbourne-Java-JVM-Users-Group/events/97752052/), Grails (https://www.meetup.com/Melbourne-Java-JVM-Users-Group/events/133318892/), Stripes (https://www.meetup.com/Melbourne-Java-JVM-Users-Group/events/55492392/), Play 2 with Akka (https://www.meetup.com/Melbourne-Java-JVM-Users-Group/events/72177322/))

Testing frameworks (Geb (https://www.meetup.com/Melbourne-Java-JVM-Users-Group/events/55492392/), JBehave (https://www.meetup.com/Melbourne-Java-JVM-Users-Group/events/66903902/)) and Katas (https://www.meetup.com/Melbourne-Java-JVM-Users-Group/events/103218512/)

Our members range from those new to programming, students and testers looking to move into development, all the way to those who have been using Java since it was called Oak (did you even know Java used to be called Oak?).

Membership is free. It costs nothing to attend most nights thanks to the generosity of our sponsors (https://www.meetup.com/Melbourne-Java-JVM-Users-Group/sponsors/). We meet once a month in the CBD.

Whether you are developing on the JVM or just curious to see what its like, and regardless if you are based in Melbourne or just stopping through please register, we'd be happy to have you. Look forward to seeing you at a future meetup!

How to turbocharge your Java applications by Satheesh Rajaraman (in person)

Hi everyone,

We made it to the last meet-up of 2022! We're excited to announce that MelbJVMs next meetup is about How to turbocharge your Java applications by Satheesh Rajaraman

How to turbocharge your Java applications

In today’s Cloud-centric software world, more and more companies use Java like never before. Highly used Java projects like Kafka, Cassandra, Elasticsearch, Hadoop, Spark, Ignite, Hadoop, Hazelcast, Tomcat, Jboss, Flink, Solr and Zookeeper etc are excellent examples of popular Java-based projects on the cloud that powers enterprises today.

The purpose of this session is to share how large enterprises turbocharge their Java-based applications, reduce warmup time, reduce latency, and improve throughput without changing a line of code.

About the Speaker

Satheesh Rajaraman is a Technology professional at Azul, a provider of high-performance OpenJDK that helps organisations deliver outcomes at speed and scale, meet SLAs, and reduce infrastructure costs. With over 20 years of experience in technology, Satheesh has helped enterprises to turbo charge business critical applications.
