Kyle Kingsbury ( will be presenting:
"Ten to the Ninth: Performance Techniques in Jepsen"
Jepsen is a Clojure library for testing distributed systems correctness. We’ll talk about how Jepsen records and analyzes histories of up to a billion operations with the help of a new file format, faster lazy and persistent data structures, memory-adaptive caching, associative folds, and thread-safe transactional executors. Come learn about some of the lesser-known corners of the JVM and how to write faster, more efficient programs.
Kyle Kingsbury, a.k.a "Aphyr", is a computer safety researcher working as an independent consultant. He’s the author of the Riemann monitoring system, the Clojure from the Ground Up introduction to programming, and the Jepsen series on distributed systems correctness. He grills databases in the American Midwest.
