Strange Loop

The Performance Engineer's Guide To Java HotSpot Virtual Machine's Execution Engine.

Monica Beckwith has worked with the Java Virtual Machine for more than a decade not just optimizing the JVM heuristics, but also improving the Just-in-time (JIT) code quality for various processor architectures as well as working with the garbage collectors and improving garbage collection for server systems.

During this talk, Monica will cover a few JIT and Runtime optimizations and she will dive into the HotSpot garbage collection and provide an overview of the various garbage collectors available in HotSpot.
