Don't waste time guessing at performance bottlenecks when our comprehensive four day workshop will teach you how to quickly and definitively find the root cause of your performance woes. The course will introduce you to our unique performance tuning methodology that has successfully been used by our consultants to resolve tough performance problems. Past attendees have told us that they were able to solve long standing nagging performance issues on the Monday morning return to their projects. The course will introduce free and open source tooling that can be used immediately. Already got a fancy commercial tool? We say, all the better as this workshop will help make you more effective with them also. Looking at buying a fancy commercial tool? The workshop will can help you decide which products have the features you'll need and which ones will work best for you. No tips, no tricks, just a solid, proven approach to Java performance troubleshooting that won't be obsolete with the next release. Exercises taken from real world problems designed to expose how Java and the Java Virtual Machine works. Attendess of this workshop will learn how to:

  • Quickly identify the root causes of poor performance in your applications
  • Eliminate conditions that will prevent you from finding performance bottlenecks
  • Find critical supportive evidence before deciding on a potentially expensive course of action
  • Find performance issues before your customers find them for your

What Others are Saying

"This is the course that you will have wished you had attended when your boss is breathing down your neck asking why the application is slow." - Dr. Heinz Kabutz, the Java Specialist "The best course I ever attended: High knowledge of the trainer. Very helpful information, which could be used in real life. Exercises allowing to see the real life problems and the way how the problems should be solved - step by step. Introduction to open source / free tools which allow to monitor and diagnose quickly performance problems of the application." - Rafal Zablocki, ING Nationale-Nederlanden "Well balanced mix of theory, practice and real-life stories. Kirk explained the methodology of performance tuning process with hands-on exercises and didn’t try to sell any products; it was probably the most useful professional training course I have ever attended." - Vladimir Shor, WebMedia

Simply great training provider that I can go for updating/acquiring my skill sets.

The platform is very intuitive and easy to navigate. Great tool for learning

Both course material and instructor demonstrated a sound foundation on Maximo material

Brandon was a great instructor. The virtual course materials and labs provided were very informative.

The class was good, but at times the pace did seem a bit fast to actually try to remember some of the information.
