Video: Premature Optimization in Scala

· Performance Zone

The Performance Zone is presented by AppDynamics. Scalability and better performance are constant concerns for the developer and operations manager. Try AppDynamics' fully-featured performance tool for Java, .NET, PHP, & Node.js.


Erik Osheim, Senior R&D Engineer at Precog, delivers a talk focusing on low-level optimization in Scala and strategies to help the JVM run faster. Sounds simple enough, but as Erik mentions it often gets more complicated.

This talk, for the Northeast Scala Symposium, provides tips to avoid "premature optimization." John address, and creates solutions for, many issues that can arise. Some of these topics include:

Specialization successes (& failures)
Boxing & GC pressure
Inlining limitations
Reading Java Bytecode
Profiling & benchmarking

The Performance Zone is presented by AppDynamics. AppDynamics is a leader in the APM space with massive cost reductions for users.
