Interaction Protocols: It's All About Good Manners

Distributed and concurrent systems can be considered a social group that collaborate to achieve collective goals. In order to collaborate a system of rules must be applied that affords good hygiene, fault tolerance, and effective communication to coordinate, share knowledge, and provide feedback in a trusted manner. These rules form a number of protocols which enable the group to act as a system which is greater than the sum of the individual components.

 

In this talk we will explore the history of protocols and their application when building distributed systems. Protocols provide the foundation on which the quality attributes are delivered. Qualities such as performance, resilience, and security.

Continuous Profiling in Production: What, Why and How

Everyone wants to understand what their application is really doing in production, but this information is normally invisible to JVM developers. Profilers tell you what code your application is running but few developers profile and mostly on their development environments. Thankfully...

PANEL DISCUSSION + Live Q&A Open Space

Panel: Performance - What's Next?

A lot of the techniques and approaches that we use for developing and improving software performance are tried and tested rather than innovative. But what does the future hold - will be doing the same things in 5, 10 or 20 years time or will software evolve?
