Programming for Performance

A session at Open Apereo 2013 Conference (Jasig & Sakai)

Wednesday 5th June, 2013

10:00am to 10:45am (PST)

The web continues to grow. Users continue to adopt our web applications in remarkable numbers. Then our application stops working correctly. We have hit a performance problem. Suddenly, we have to derail current application development to address critical performance problems in our production system.

Handling performance problems after the code has already gone to production is a problem. It impacts users and it impacts current application development. It would be better if we could learn to write code that does not have performance problems to begin with.

This session will show some common coding performance problems. We will try to give developers a set of tips and possibly design patterns to consider using as they do their application development. This session will focus on the Java Programming language. Many of the examples shown in this session could be applied to other programming environments.
