Netty – The async event-driven network application framework


Speaker: Norman Maurer.

Netty is an asynchronous event-driven network framework which will you help to full-fill those requirements in an efficient and simple way while still
provide an easy to use API which makes your code easy to extend and maintain.

The internet and network is getting more important with every single day. So it may not be surprising to see that almost every application needs to interact over at least one of them these days. But writing high-performing network applications is not easy, especially if you expect to serve ten of thousands of concurrent connections.

In this session we will cover everything you need to make use of Netty in your next project. Get a understanding about its design and architecture from the ground up and see how you can make the most out of it. Learn how other companies and projects use Netty to full-fill their purpose. These Companies includes well known names like Red Hat, Twitter, Facebook, Google and many more.
