Presentation: Approachable concurrency for the JVM with Groovy Parallel Systems

Track: Java / Time: Wednesday 10:20 - 11:10 / Location: Lille Sal, Musikhuset

The Java platform has supported concurrent programming since its early days. However, the standard means of multithreading and synchronization have been difficult to master. In this talk I will explore how with the help of GPars, Groovy's library for concurrent programming, concepts like fork/join, map/reduce, actors, and dataflow can make our concurrent tasks simpler and less error-prone. If you work on the JVM and would like to prepare yourself for the multi-core era, jump in and join the party!
