  • What Python can learn from Java

    by Jonathan Ellis

    Java is in some ways a bogeyman to the Python community -- the language that parents scare their children with, the Cobol of the 21st century. But if we look past the cesspool of JEE it turns out that Java has quietly become an excellent systems environment, one that is still in many ways ahead of its time.

    • Introduction
    • The difference between systems and web (and scientific) computing
    • Why Pythonistas should care about systems programming
    • Concurrency
    • Why "just use multiple processes" is inadequate
    • Why event loops are inadequate
    • java.util.concurrent: low level (collections, synch primitives)
    • j.u.c.: high level (executors, futures, fork/join)
    • The VM
    • State of the art GC
    • Built-in (and extensible) telemetry
    • More functional than Python?!
    • immutability
    • Guava: com.google.*
