Kodewerk – Kodewerk offers a comprehensive four day workshop that covers techniques that have been proven to improve ones ability to find and fix performance bottlenecks. What you won’t find are tips and tricks that will be obsolete with the next release of Java. Instead, the course focuses on a methodology that has evolved from years of experience solving performance problems found in a variety of languages running on number of different execution platforms. This Kodewerk course focuses on Performance Testing fundamentals, Garbage Collection tuning & optimization, JVM bottleneck analysis and tuning and Java Performance optimization.  

During the course of the seminar we will look at how Java works, tooling to expose performance bottlenecks and a methodology that helps you to decide on which tools should be used. The workshop contains more than a dozen exercises each taken from real world problems and each designed to challenge your thinking. Objectives of the course include –

  1. Quickly identify the root causes of poor performance in your applications
  2. Eliminate conditions that will prevent you from finding performance bottlenecks
  3. Find critical supportive evidence before deciding on a potentially expensive course of action
  4. Find performance issues before they make their escape into your production system

The sessions are conducted by Java Performance Guru – Kirk Pepperdine (LinkedIn) and Ray Hindman.

KodeWerk is offering Practical Performance Analyst readers a 15% discount on all of their courses.

Finishing School for the Professional Java Programmer
  • Java Concurrency in Practice (Course Outline) – “Java Concurrency in Practice” in a four-day intensive course. Java was built to be able to do many things at once. In computer lingo, we call this “concurrency”. This is the main reason why Java is so useful. Your coders need to master concurrency. If they do not, your system might break on your busiest day. Concurrency bugs tend to appear when we do a lot of things at the same time, such as dealing with many clients. In this course, we combine the collective wisdom of three Java experts: Dr Heinz Kabutz, Victor Grazi and Brian Goetz. Each of these has years of experience in writing concurrent Java programs. During this 4-day course, you will learn how to write safe multi-threaded Java code that performs well on your hardware. You will learn techniques to ensure visibility of your fields, to build thread safety without explicit locking. You will learn the new fork/join constructs and explore ways to parallelize your algorithms. The courses are offered onsite including over the web as a webcast.

Java Specialists is offering Practical Performance Analyst readers a 15% discount on each of the above courses.
