Florida JUGs Next Week

without comments

I will be in central Florida next week presenting at the following user groups:

An Introduction to Data Grids for Database developers (GatorJUG June 23rd)

This talk will introduce the concept of data grids to developers that have experience with Java EE and relational databases such as Oracle. The programming model will be explored (including caching patterns and similarities to NoSQL) as well as the performance & scalability improvements a data grid offers.

From IDE to Data Center – What Every Developer Should Know About Deploying Distributed Systems to Production (Orlando JUG June 24th)

Taking a distributed system from development into a working production environment is a challenge that many developers take for granted. This talk will explore these challenges, especially scenarios that are not typically seen in a development setting.

I’m especially excited about the OJUG talk as I think it will cover many topics of interest to Developers and OPS guys. It is a set of general guidelines that came about from seeing dozens of Coherence applications in production. We will cover such things as:

  • What to look for when using vmstat
  • Must-have production level JVM settings/flags
  • Developer Do’s and Dont’s
  • Crash course on thread dumps and heap dumps

We will also be giving away a copy of Oracle Coherence 3.5 at each event! If you are coming please follow the links to the events above and RSVP (you need to be a member of CodeTown to sign up, but registration is free and painless.)
