November: Profiling and BigData

Constructors don't work, and I can prove it! This presentation will show you how to analyse the behaviour of large programs without sampling, how to use MapReduce and commodity hardware to aggregate terabytes of data into useable results, and how to use this to figure out what we already knew: constructors aren't the answer for object initialisation. We'll discuss some alternative ways languages could initialise objects (such as builders) and what benefits we'd see, as well as how this applies to programmers.

WJUG 2011-11-21: Stephen Nelson on Profiling and BigData from John Hurst on Vimeo.

Speaker: Stephen Nelson

Stephen Nelson's PhD on "Profiling Initialisation Behaviour in Java" was recently accepted by Victoria University of Wellington. With a background in programming languages and software engineering, Stephen's work examines the runtime behaviour of Java programs and computes aggregate properties using a distributed in-memory MapReduce.
