Thinking Strategically About IoT

Cool? Useful? Disruptor? All of the above? IoT is having an impact on more and more industries. As the cost of instrumenting things and collecting data drops, the possibilities for what we can control and the kind of insights we can gather increase. Not only is IoT hardware cheaper and more pervasive, developing IoT software is now far more accessible. That doesn't mean there aren't tricky bits. Does Java have relevance in the IoT world? How can you keep the system reliable and handle failure in a cost-effective way? How can you cope with the data volumes? What's the best way to turn raw data into insight?

From Concurrent to Parallel

As core counts continue to increase, how we exploit hardware parallelism in practice shifts from concurrency — using more cores to handle more user requests — to parallelism — using more cores to solve data-intensive problems faster. This talk will explore the different goals, tools, and...

Real World Java 9

The feature we always hear about whenever Java 9 is in the news is Jigsaw (or modularity). But this doesn't scratch the same developer itch that Java 8's lambdas and streams did, and we're left with a vague sensation that the next version might not be that interesting. Java 9 actually has a lot...
