Dr. Venkat Subramaniam, founder of Agile Developer, Inc., and an adjunct faculty at the University of Houston, will present a seminar for the UCAR Software Engineering Assembly titled "Collections for Concurrency"
When: Tuesday, October 23, 2012 at 3:00 PM
Where: Foothills Lab Large Auditorium
Traditional collections on the Java platform focused on providing thread-safety at the expense of performance or scalability. More modern data structures strive to provide performance without compromising thread-safety. Some of them require you to adopt to a different semantics or programming model. In this presentation we will explore some data structures that can help reach both thread-safety and reasonable performance. Concurrent collections, immutable collections, operations on and performance of lists, blocking queues, and tries.
