SAOpdx: Parallel Java Programming for Multi-Core Processors

2020 SW 4th Ave., Suite 300
Portland, Oregon 97201, US (map)



Presented by the SAO Developers Forum

With over 6.5 million software developers worldwide, Java is used in every major industry segment, running on everything from cell phones to scientific supercomputers. Traditionally, it has been difficult for programmers to take advantage of the multi-core systems with their ever-multiplying number of cores. But that is all about to change with JSR-166y. Targeted for Java 7, scheduled for release in late 2010, JSR-166y adds a lightweight task framework known as ForkJoin (FJ) to the Java platform.

Steve Dohrmann will be discussing the fundamentals of parallel Java programming. His talk will include the use of Java threads, an overview of the JSR-166y (ForkJoin) package, and some points on higher-level parallel programming models. If you're a Java developer, you can't afford to miss this opportunity to learn about the future of Java in a parallel world. And developers on other environments will find the overview of parallel application development and solid parallel algorithm fundamentals to be valuable in building systems that scale and provide competitive differentiation for your solutions.

Meet the Speaker: Steve Dohrmann, Software Engineer, Intel Since joining Intel in 1994, Steve has worked in a variety of research, advanced development, and product groups within the company. He is currently working in a Java technology group and is focused on data-parallel programming for the Java VM.
