“High-Throughput Java Actors for Vertical Scaling” by Bill la Forge
Computers with multiple CPUs have become common, especially for server-side applications. But writing applications that use threads and locks that make good use of this hardware can be quite a challenge. In comparison, actor-based programming is easy but have limited throughput.
We are bringing in William la Forge, specialist in JActor consulting to share his ideas. This talk covers JActor, a Java framework for actors that can pass 100 million messages per second between actors in the same JVM.
The course will cover three topics:
1. An overview of high-performance programming in Java
2. Techniques used by JActor to deliver high throughput
3. Code samples showing how to use JActor.
Q&A will follow after the lecture and it will be a good chance for you to have all of yours questions answered.

TechMeetups has been setup to create a global network of Tech communities from San Francisco to Sydney. We believe that Tech communities are isolated and great things can be achieved if we connect within our cities and outside our borders. Our goal is to create a global Tech cluster of over 50 inter-connected Tech communities by 2013.
Membership to our communities is free and anyone thinking about doing their own Startup and wanting to bounce ideas off each other, meet potential partners or investors in their city or even connect with like minded individuals in other parts of the world are welcome to join our groups! TechMeetups is all about YOU so come along, join us and lets connect to form a truly global tech community!
