Monica Beckwith has worked with the Java Virtual Machine for more than a decade not just optimizing the JVM heuristics,but also improving the Just-in-time (JIT) code quality for various processor architectures as well as working with the garbage collectors and improving garbage collection for server systems.

During this talk, Monica will cover a few JIT and Runtime optimizations and she will dive into the HotSpot garbage collection and provide an overview of the various garbage collectors available in HotSpot.

This talk is open to all members of the community.
