Why subscribe to the recordings? We live in a busy world and sometimes the webinar might clash with another important meeting you might have. Or you might want to go over the contents one more time. At the introductory price of $9 per month, or $99 per year, you cannot go wrong. Or do an outright purchase of $127 and have life-time access to the material. We also have a bundle for all our Happy Hours since 2016 for just $299.

Thank you for your support.

Dates and Topics

  • Dec 6, 2018: Project Loom, Fibers and Blocking IO
    Writing concurrent code is easy. We simply start a thread, point it at a network socket and let it read and write data. But having one system level thread per socket is too heavy-weight. One alternative is Java.NIO, with non-blocking sockets. But the coding is a lot more involved, and the latency sometimes worse. In this webinar we will look into the future at what Project Loom will give us (hopefully) with the advent of fibers. We will explain what fibers are, what they can do, and what they might not be able to do. Will also demonstrate how the code would look with the new construct. Preparation: Build your own "loom" JDK, so you can follow along with the examples. Note that Project Loom is in active development, so anything we say in the webinar is subject to change. Maybe before tomorrow.
