    You have started to hear about micro-services, evented asynch servers, and WebSockets be prepared to jump in with Vert.x. Using this new server technology you get all these features AND it runs JavaScript, Java, Scala, Python, Ruby, CoffeeScript, and Groovy. You don't have to be a Node.JS hipster to have all the fun - though JavaScript is fine if you roll that way.   This talk will cover a basic introduction to Vert.x and it's architecture. We are going to spin up a Vert.x server in less than 3 minutes in the cloud at a cost of $0 (the right price).  Then I will will show how I built a WebSocket asset tracking application with Leaflet and a Vert.x backend application. I will be using the US airplane flight tracking data to show events going through our server and pushed out to all the browsers in the room. The goal is at the end you can go home and start writing your own scalable, (a)synchronous, WebSocket enabled, map tracking application.

    Connecticut Java User Group's (CTJUG) September meeting has been posted. This month David DiGangi from AppDynamics will present on the "Top 10 Most Common Java Performance Problems." Most performance issues in Java can be attributed to a handful of root causes. Occasionally bizarre corner cases can come out of the blue and wreak havoc in an application, but for the most part a vast majority of performance issues in Java are all pretty much cookie cutter. In this session, we’ll talk about some of the most common performance problems one can encounter along with how to recognize and address these issues to minimize their impact and prevent them from occurring in your application.
