Vlad Mihalcea – Speaker interview

Vlad Mihalcea

Vlad Mihalcea is a Hibernate Developer Advocate. He spoke at Devoxx France, Voxxed Days Bucharest, JavaZone. This is a list of presentations that he’s been giving in 2016: https://vladmihalcea.com/presentations/

Q. You’re speaking at Voxxed Days Bucharest in March. Tell us a bit about your session.

My session, High-Performance Hibernate, is about getting the most out of your favorite JPA provider.

Q. Why is the subject matter important?

Hibernate is undoubtedly the most popular data access framework in Java, yet, it’s not always used as it should. The biggest problem with any relational database framework is that it requires you to know a lot of database-specific details, which are not very well-known by Java developers. In this session, I’d like to present which Hibernate features you should use, and which ones you should avoid when developing a high-performance enterprise application.

Q. Who should attend your session?

This session is aimed for any Java developer or architect who’s ever used Hibernate before. Therefore, it’s very useful for junior and senior developers alike since I cover both basic, as well as some advanced topics in this presentation.

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

After this presentation, when you get back to work, you can start reviewing your JPA code and immediately be able to spot places which could be optimized. I’m going to present many tips and tricks, many of which have never been shown in the same light as I like to present them.

Q. Aside from speaking at Voxxed Days Bucharest, what else are you excited about for 2017?

Although I can’t speak at many events, I really wanted to participate at Voxxed Days Zürich and Bucharest, as well as Craft Conf Budapest. Apart from these three conferences, I’m going to run my High-Performance Java Persistence workshop (https://vladmihalcea.com/trainings/) for companies that want to run their data access layer at warp speed. While in 2016 I managed to publish the High-Performance Java Persistence book (https://leanpub.com/high-performance-java-persistence), in 2017 I want to bring some updates, which eventually will materialize in the second edition, so stay tuned!
