Welcome! This is a group for anyone interested in Java development. Meetings are held every second Wednesday of the month and include opportunities for networking as well as presentations on some topic of interest to Java developers. We meet for dinner/drinks afterward.
Abstract: As participants in the big tent that is the Java ecosystem (and that includes languages like Groovy, Scala, Kotlin and many others), we often overlook the engine the underlies it all--the Java Virtual Machine. In this talk, we will look at the JVM instruction set, its architecture, the design considerations that went into it, its pitfalls and how it has evolved over the years.
