This comprehensive four-day workshop will provide you with techniques that have been proven to improve your ability to find and fix performance bottlenecks. The course focuses on a methodology that has evolved from years of experience solving performance problems found in a variety of languages running on number of different execution platforms. (I.e., you won't find tips and tricks that will be obsoleted with the next release of Java.) During the course of the seminar we will look at how Java works, tooling to expose performance bottlenecks, and a methodology that helps you to decide which tools should be used.
The workshop contains more than a dozen exercises each taken from real world problems and each designed to challenge your thinking. During the four days you'll learn how to:
While we like and use commercial tools, you won't find any of them featured here. Instead we will give you a battery of open-source tooling. The use of open-source software has enabled people to solve that nagging performance problem on the Monday following the course. Moreover, the techniques taught will improve your effectiveness with any tooling that you may already be using.
Who presents the workshop?
Led by Kirk Pepperdine—a recognized expert in Java Performance Tuning, Sun Java Champion, international speaker and trainer, and co-contributor to the successful Java Performance Tuning Newsletter—you'll learn in four days what would otherwise take years of self-study. Kirk has fixed numerous critical performance issues and has saved millions in lost revenue and downtime for his clients. Full of insight and packed with experience, this course can help you do the same.
Who should attend?If you're a Java developer and you'd like to take the "art" out of performance tuning, join us.
What will you learn?
Day One: Dominating consumer
Day Two: Where did my memory go?
Day Three: Profiling
Day Four: Benchmarking
How do I get there (and where do I stay)?

What people are saying
Here's what students who attended previous Java Performance Tuning courses have to say about the experience:
"Well balanced mix of theory, practice and real-life stories. Kirk explained the methodology of performance tuning process with hands-on exercises and didn't try to sell any products; it was probably the most useful professional training course I have ever attended." Vladimir Shor, WebMedia
"There are times when a new piece of information initiates a sea-change in your thinking and the KodeWerk course has for me been one of these events. Forget everything you thought you knew about writing performant code and prepare yourself to be astounded at how much you never knew!" Alain Moran
