With the cooperation of SUN Microsystems Poland and Grzegorz Duda (dWorld.pl), Warszawa Java User Group (Warszawa JUG) is proud to invite you to a talk with Kirk Pepperdine, a Java Champion focusing on all aspects of Java performance and tuning in each phase of a project life cycle, who will present "Performance Tuning with Cheap Drink and Poor Tools".

The talk takes place on Tuesday, December 15th at 6:00PM in the room 5440 of MIMUW on Banacha 2 street in Warsaw, Poland.

Here is how Kirk announces his presentation:

After a brief introduction to a methodology to performance tune Java applications, the audience will guide me through the steps needed to tune an application. The application models a number of performance problems that are common in real world applications. During the session, I will introduce a number of tools designed to expose causal code paths to each specific problem.

Kirk Pepperdine has been working in high performance and distributed computing for nearly 20 years. His focus has been on performance, working on architecting, developing, and tuning applications running on Cray and other high performance computing platforms. Kirk now specializes in Java, where he works in all aspects of performance and tuning in each phase of a project life cycle.
