    The Java Hoonmobile: Designing for performance on the JVM

    Simple Engineering

    Title: The Java Hoonmobile: Designing for performance on the JVM Speaker: Cliff Moon, Boundary CTO

    Abstract: The vast majority of code in this world doesn't do very much. Most code calls into a database, tweaks a few domain objects, and renders an HTML page. This talk is not about that kind of code. Sometimes your code has to go fast, as fast as the machine will run it. Which turns out is really fast in 2014. Faced with this challenge, you might reach for C, or god forbid, C++. But wait, despair not. Your life doesn't necessarily need to devolve into memory management and template hell. There is another path: Java. It turns out that if you start with the right kind of raw material with some tweaking and tuning you can turn this lowly blue collar grocery getter into a fire breathing dragster. I'll share theory, experience, and working code from one gearhead to another.
