How do you scale your application to meet user demand? Whether your usage levels spike unpredictably or steadily grow, your applications must be able to scale up and out to meet user expectations. Leveraging an In-Memory Data Grid (IMDG) in your application can be the perfect solution. Not only do they provide a large layer of RAM based storage for your applications, most also handle the complexities of distributed computing for you, allowing you to concentrate on building your application.

Hazelcast is an easy to use IMDG implementation that provides dynamic scaling, data sharing, and more. The entire Hazelcast application is baked into a single JAR file you can include in your application and start using with only a few lines of code. In this talk we’ll introduce Hazelcast with an overview of how it operates, then dive into the code to quickly build a fully functioning distributed system.

You’ll see how Hazelcast implements distributed storage and provides out of the box data objects, enables using RAM storage outside of Java heap memory, and explore some of its distributed computation capabilities.

Improving moved to 5445 Legacy Dr. in Plano. This is the Northwest corner of Legacy and Hedgcoxe. It doesn't have great signage right now so here is a picture of the south side of the building (the side facing Legacy) where you should park and enter.

A couple of things:

• Doors will be locked after 6:00 PM but we will be monitoring the south doors until the meeting starts at 7:00 PM.

• After that or if you can't get in before then and no one is watching text (469)[masked].

• There is parking on the north side of the building too.

Hope to see everyone there.
