Talk: Transactions and Concurrency Control Patterns

Full-day Workshop: High-Performance Java Persistence

Q. Tell us a bit about yourself. What are your hobbies and interests?

I’m a Java Champion mostly known for my contributions to the JPA and Hibernate ecosystem. I’m now working on a new product called Hypersistence Optimizer, which automatically detects any Hibernate-specific mapping or configuration issue so that developers know right from the start if they are using Hibernate the right way.

Q. Why did you select this topic for your session at Voxxed Days Bucharest 2019?

Transactions and Concurrency Control are of paramount important when it comes to data integrity. Although this is an old-school topic, it’s ever green. This, like wine and SQL, only gets better with time.

Q. Who should attend your session? 

Any Java developer that happens to interact with a database system.

Q. What are the key things attendees will take away from your session? 

They will learn various concurrency control patterns and know when to apply them. 

Q. Aside from speaking at Voxxed Days Bucharest, what are your other plans for this year?

This year, I plan on launching my Hypersistence Optimizer product and offer a new SQL-based course and training.
