Description

At Hotels.com Java is a core part of our technology stack running through everything we do. Our Hotels.com tech teams are always keen to share what they do so others can learn from them’ and have others come in and speak so we can learn from them too.

Our next Java meetup is going to be held on Wednesday 24th January at the Hotels.com offices in Angel. On the evening we have a wide range of talks, including from Jack Shirazi, Andrzej Czarny and Simon Maple. There will also be food, drink and lots of opportunity to chat to fellow engineers keen to learn and share.

"A practical approach to Java Memory Model"

Java Memory Model is an interesting area of multi-thread programming. It describes how threads interact through memory and what behaviours are allowed in concurrent execution. Most of java developers are familiar with mutual exclusion and synchronized keyword but sometimes we forget that beside mutual exclusion we also have to care about memory visibility.

The talk will introduce number of examples to help understand JMM. It will use OpenJDK Java Concurrency Stress tests framework (JCStress) to validate the results.

“ The Java eco-system: Past, Present and Future”

Over the past 5 years, RebelLabs has surveyed the Java eco-system asking about which tools and technologies are used to understand trends in our industry usage. This includes flame war topics such as IDEs, build tools and web frameworks to the adoption of Java SE and EE releases, Application Server, Database usage and much more. We'll look at the latest data we have (Present), the trends across the years since 2012 (Past) and our expectations for what we'll see in the upcoming years (Future). This session will have ignite talks to go through the data at a fast pace, followed by a deeper analysis of the data afterwards.
