Learning Outcome


1. Software design patterns (Singleton, Factory, Visitor...) helps us to build effective software.Similar to that I have developed 12 thread dump analysis patterns (https://blog.fastthread.io/category/thread-dump- patterns/) - which helps one to effectively analyze thread dumps. These patterns have helped several engineers to troubleshoot and identify root cause of the complex production problems.

2. It always easy to learn with examples. These patterns will be taught to the attendees through the real world problems that are experienced by major enterprises and startups. Attendees will be shown the real world thread dumps and how these patterns help to identify the root cause
