Oaktable World 2012 was an event held during last year’s Oracle OpenWorld 2012 at a venue within walking distance of the Moscone Center. More information about Oaktable World can be found here.
The venue lent itself to good deep-technical discussions and free-thinking. However, as people who attended OpenWorld 2012 know, San Francisco was enduring near all-time record high temperatures. It must have been 98F inside the venue. The heat was only so much fun. I had to throw in a pretty nasty head cold. All of that aside, I took the podium one afternoon and was pleased to have a full house to present to.
The slides I brought touched on such topics as performance per core across generations of x64 hardware and methodologies for studying such things. I also spoke of Intel’s Turbo Boost 2.0 and how folks should add clock frequency monitoring tools to their standard bad of tricks.
The final master of the video is the fruit of Marcin Przepiorowski’s labor. For some reason there was a lot of audio/video troubles in the master. Marcin really outdid himself to stitch all this back together. Thanks, Marcin.
So, a lot was lost from the session—to include the Q/A. However, I’d like to offer a link to the video and open this post up for questions on the material.
