    Java on CRaC: Superfast JVM Application Startup

    One of the key benefits of a microservice architecture is the ability to dynamically respond to changes in load by spinning up new instances as required. However, when deploying JVM-based services, the warmup time of JIT compilation can be a limitation on the effectiveness of this technique.

    One approach to solving this problem is using native images, where the service is statically compiled using an ahead-of-time (AOT) compiler. Although this does reduce startup time and footprint, it does so at the cost of overall performance.

    A new project has been proposed and accepted into OpenJDK called CRaC (Coordinated Restore at Checkpoint). The goal is to research the co-ordination of Java programs with mechanisms to checkpoint (snapshot) a running application.
    Restoring from the snapshot could solve some of the problems with the startup and warmup times, especially in microservices.

    In this session, we’ll look at the main challenges for such a project, potential solutions and the results from a proof-of-concept implementation.

  • Ruby Brigade - Discord Bot Edition

    Link visible for attendees

    This month, we're going to play with Discord Bots! Discord is a chat and gaming platform, and there's a rich API to interact with users and the Discord system. We'll build a basic command and response bot together and revel in the hilarity that ensues. Come prepared with a Discord account (discord.com) and a recent Ruby runtime (3.x+) installed, and we'll have a great time.

  • CiNPA - Security SIG

    Needs a location

    Meeting Topic: IPv6 has been around a lot longer than you think. Why then is it not widely used? Join this talk to discover the strong security, weakness for privacy, and the more recent fixes that make it all potentially the next best change for the Internet. Learn about IPv6, how it works, why it works as it does, and how it has been improved over time. I hope to see you in the vanguard leading the way when IPv6 becomes the (actual) standard.

    About the speaker: Brendan O'Connor. Having worked in educational settings, Fortune 500 companies, spending a few years consulting, and at a start-up, and now with the world's largest pure-play security vendor, Check Point Software Security, Brendan's experience in technology is pretty expansive. However, learning is a never-ending process, even with over 25 years of IT and Information Security experience. Brendan likes to share what he has learned at home and around the country, speaking at various events, covering a variety of topics, and meeting new people.
