Title: "What's inside a JVM?"

Abstract:Are you interested in learning what a Java Virtual Machine (JVM) is and what it does for your Java applications? This presentation will provide insight into the inner workings of a Java Virtual Machine and some drill down on what compilers and garbage collectors do, so that you don’t have to worry about it while programming your Java application.

In particular, you will learn about common optimizations, well established garbage collection algorithms, and what the current biggest challenge with Java scalability is today.

Bio: Eva has been involved with Java virtual machine technologies, SOA, Cloud, and other enterprise middleware solutions for the past 10 years. She began her career at Appeal Virtual Solutions (developer of the JRockit JVM) later acquired by BEA Systems. Eva holds two patents on Garbage Collection heuristics and algorithms, and pioneered Deterministic Garbage Collection which later became productized through JRockit Real Time.
Eva has worked closely with Sun and Intel on many technical partnerships, as well as various integration projects with the JRockit Product Group, Weblogic, and Coherence (prior to their acquisition by Oracle in 2008). Eva has been with Azul Systems since 2009, as Product Manager for the Zing Java Platform.

Eva holds a Master of Science from the Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden, and a B.S with a Minor in Economics from the University of Stockholm.

Company Bio: Azul Systems, Inc. delivers an elastic JVM and Java platform for enterprise applications that require scalability and predictable response times. Derived from the same source code based as HotSpot, Azul Zing is a 100% Java compatible runtime, offering enterprise customers unprecedented scalability and response time consistency over traditional JVM, such as HotSpot. Designed and optimized for x86 servers, Azul's Zing platform allows user-intensive and QoS-sensitive Java applications to improve their throughput by an order of magnitude or more.
