What do I do with 1000s cores. Lessons learnt building an agent-based modelling system

Day 2 /  / Track 4  /  EN / For practicing engineers

Supercomputer-worthy core counts and memory sizes are more approachable than ever.

"What can it do" is the obvious question to ask. Simulation, especially based around agents, is one of the possible answers.

Andrzej will talk about agent based modelling, from the point of view of a developer building the framework, focusing on some interesting, non-trivial or plain old surprising experiences he's getting building a JVM-based agent-based modelling SDK at Simudyne. He will talk performance, distributed systems, multithreading and SDK design.

Andrzej likes distributed systems in all shapes and forms. Coding since the age of 8, loves simplicity and continuous delivery. While he has written in many languages, he favours the JVM. Since "most software problems are people problems", he stirs communities, organizes and speaks at conferences (proud to be a JavaONE Rockstar!). He is passionate about all things data, because science! In his spare timeā€¦ cycling, photography and books. And he is a Java Champion!
