Martin Thompson focuses on the evolution of Java and how it contrasts to C/C++, covering the cultural challenges of pushing the limits of performance and how to collaborate with industry experts and organize teams, which often stands at odds with the culture in many organisations.


Martin Thompson is a high-performance and low-latency specialist, with over two decades working with large scale transactional and big-data systems, in the automotive, gaming, financial, mobile, and CMS domains. He believes in Mechanical Sympathy, which is applying an understanding of the hardware to the creation of software, being fundamental to delivering elegant high-performance solutions.

Software is Changing the World. QCon empowers software development by facilitating the spread of knowledge and innovation in the developer community. A practitioner-driven conference, QCon is designed for technical team leads, architects, engineering directors, and project managers who influence innovation in their teams.
