SeaJUG is an all volunteer effort - which means items such as the website and mailing list are updated as schedules afford. We meet on the 3rd Tuesday of every month. We need suggestions/volunteers for topics! If you'd like to donate your time/skills to the cause, contact Nimret Sandhu.
Over the past 4 years, Apptio has implemented and run a SaaS based hybrid in-memory/on-disk analytics and transaction store (no-sql) similar in concept to SAP's "HANA" in 100% Pure Java. I'll talk about lessons we've learned and tricks we've discovered while coding and tuning the system - everything from multi-threading on 48 cores with a 120 GB Java heap and architecting an elastic compute & data grid to tuning a GWT (Google Web Toolkit) application.
