A note to our readers: You asked so we have developed a set of features that allow you to reduce the noise: you can get email and web notifications for topics you are interested in. Learn more about our new features.


Martin Thompson focuses on a long quest to discover algorithms which provide very high throughput while keeping latency low and predictable. He covers some fundamental theory of concurrency and then compares various approaches to the same problem of measuring the impact on latency. He shows how some of these algorithm implementations get more interesting given the new features in Java 8.
