Heinz Kabutz, author of the famous JavaSpecialists Newsletter has developed a new training about Java concurrency. In this course, we combine the collective wisdom of three Java experts: Dr Heinz Kabutz, Victor Grazi and Brian Goetz. Each of these has years of experience in writing concurrent Java programs.
During this 4-day course, you will learn how to write safe multi-threaded Java code that performs well on your hardware. You will learn techniques to ensure visibility of your fields, to build thread safety without explicit locking. You will learn the new fork/join constructs and explore ways to parallelize your algorithms.
More information on the training is available here:
Happy new year! In 2012 we’ll offer a couple of new courses with excellent trainers. We’ve just put up a website for one of our new trainings in 2012: www.javaeetraining.de.
So welcome aboard Java Champion Antonio Goncalves, leader of the Paris-JUG, Co-Organizer of Devoxx France, JCP Expert Group Member and author of popular Java EE books! We’re happy to host his 3-day course “Java EE 6″ in Munich, Germany. So if you’re eager to learn something new in 2012, be sure to check out our catalogue.
..and stay tuned for my next announcement! We’ve got many more new trainings for you.
Anyone going to JAX in Mainz, April 16-20? I wanted to go to this conference for a long time. It’s excellent from what I hear, and it’s in Germany. Here’s the link: http://jax.de/2012. This year I submitted an abstract for a talk, and just received the confirmation. The talk is “Manage Desktop Complexity”
a while ago it seemed that Duke was getting fat and lazy, so the Java community started pushing him to work out:
Well, it seems we overdid it… When I met Duke at Jazoon this week I was shocked. Instead of the chubby, good-natured being we know and love, I was facing this odd, shark-shaped shadow of his former self:
Not sure wether he’s bulimic or sick, but he definitely didn’t seem to be very healthy. I was too appalled to say something to him, so I tried to put a good face on the matter, but I think we definitely need to do something about it…
Here are some additional shots to prove his unnatural transformation:
Summer is coming, and at Eppleton we’re preparing for the launch of our new online training site. Right now we’re preparing everything for the upcoming training with Kirk Pepperdine in Munich next month “Become Proficient in Java Performance Tuning with Kirk Pepperdine” (June 14th-17th).
“This comprehensive four day workshop will provide you with techniques that have been proven to improve your ability to find and fix performance bottlenecks. What you won’t find are tips and tricks that will be obsoleted with the next release of Java. Instead 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. 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 on 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.”
This will also the first time we’ll be offering our training via BigBlueButton, the Open Source Web Conferencing platform. If you want to join us in Munich you can register here. In case you have specific questons, or you want to participate via our virtual classroom from your site please contact us directly.
NetBeans Day in Munich, June 18th
Kirk will also stay in Munich for our NetBeans Day on June 18th organized by the XING NetBeans User Group together with Eppleton. He’ll talk about performance tuning with NetBeans and extending VisualVM. Oracle Developer of the Year Adam Bien will do some live hacking showing real world Java EE 6. And, of course, we’ll have plenty of news about the NetBeans Platform as well. So, if you’re in Munich on June 18, come to this free community event to meet your peers offline and learn exciting new things about our favorite IDE and Java desktop application framework!
You can already preregister for the event here. Stay tuned for more information and a detailed schedule.
