My schedule for JavaOne and Oracle Open World

I'm very excited to have got my schedule for Open World and JavaOne:

CON8108: Engineering Insights: Best Practices for Optimizing Oracle Software for Oracle Hardware
Venue / Room: Intercontinental - Grand Ballroom C
Date and Time: 10/1/14, 16:45 - 17:30

CON2654: Java Performance: Hardware, Structures, and Algorithms
Venue / Room: Hilton - Imperial Ballroom A
Date and Time: 9/29/14, 17:30 - 18:30

The first talk will be about some of the techniques I use when performance tuning software. We get very involved in looking at how Oracle software works on Oracle hardware. The things we do work for any software, but we have the advantage of good working relationships with the critical teams.

The second talk is with Charlie Hunt, it's a follow on from the talk we gave at JavaOne last year. We got Rock Star awards for that, so the pressure's on a bit for this sequel. Fortunately there's still plenty to talk about when you look at how Java programs interact with the hardware, and how careful choices of data structures and algorithms can have a significant impact on delivered performance.

Anyway, I hope to see a bunch of people there, if you're reading this, please come and introduce yourself. If you don't make it I'm looking forward to putting links to the presentations up.
