Talk: Java Coding for Performance (Lee Chuk Munn - NUS)Talk Description: Abstraction is very important when writing software. However, even though highly abstracted programs are easier to understand and write, many times they ignore the underlying implementation, and as a result the performance of the program suffers. This talk will tell you how to fine-tune your Java code for the mission critical parts of your program.

His current responsibilities includes developing courseware, and teaching graduate and public courses in enterprise software engineering, software architecture, web technologies and enterprise Java.
