Track: Evolving the JVM

Location: Ballroom A

Day of week: Wednesday

JVM futures, JIT directions and improvements to the runtimes stack is the theme of this year’s JVM track. Come listen to practitioners telling the journey of JVM and the runtime ecosystem. We will have industry leads talk about expanding JVM/JIT to the cloud and at the same time, we will head from performance experts at being empathetic to the underlying hardware.

Track Host: Monica Beckwith

Java Champion, Passionate about JVM performance, First Lego League coach, Runtimes @Microsoft

Java Champion Monica Beckwith is considered a subject matter expert, has several published articles and gets regular invitations to give talks on JVM/JIT Compilation/Garbage Collection (GC). She is also a JavaOne Rock Star.

Monica has made various performance contributions to the Java HotSpot VM by identifying the need for a NUMA-aware allocator and allocation patterns, reduction of redundant instructions, reduction of the Java object header, prefetching patterns, redundant array checks in a loop and various other optimizations for the JIT compiler, the generated code, the JVM heuristics and garbage collection and collectors.

Prior to joining Microsoft, Monica was the JVM Performance Architect at Arm. Her past also includes leading Oracle’s Garbage First Garbage Collector performance team.
