Mayday! Mayday! I need Java Mission Control!

Wednesday, November 19th, 2014
6:30 - 8:30 PM

Presented by

Peter Tran

Have you run into issues with a Java application before (maybe your own O.o) and you feel like you're flying blind? Look no further than your own JDK!. But using these tools isn't always entirely intuitive, and you might want to have some help figuring out how to get the most out of them quickly. Come to this month's meeting and get your application performance level with the help of Java Mission Control and the Java Flight Recorder.

Peter Tran works for PROS Revenue Management as a Performance Architect. Peter's expertise is server-side performance tuning and specializes in Oracle and SQL Server performance tuning. Peter works in the development group where he helps benchmark PROS's application against Oracle and SQL Server and recommends performance best practices to the development team. Peter also works closely with PROS's customers to help tune the their environment during deployment.

Suggested Parking:

Park across the street in the parking garage on Elgin on the 7th floor, taking a parking receipt as you enter the parking garage. Parking is free after 7:00 PM, so you won't have to pay as you exit. Take the elevator to the 3rd floor of the parking garage and walk across the sky bridge. The HJUG meeting will be on the 2nd floor on the left just before you reach the elevator bank.

Meeting Sponsor: Coder Camps

Coder Camps is a 9-week, hands-on coding “boot camp” focused on teaching motivated students the programming skills needed to be successful in a junior developer role. While Coder Camps focuses on teaching students .NET framework and prominent programming languages, it also equips students with real-world skills and an experienced teaching staff that is passionate about helping you get you the job after the program ends. With facilities currently in Houston, online and soon to be open in San Francisco, Seattle and Washington, D.C., students can start their path towards becoming a developer locally or globally.
