Hello Sun experts,
I work for ESPN.com and one of our teams here is looking for serious
garbage collection expertise.
In a "past life" I worked at Sun for 5+ years and one of my former
co-workers (Randy Crihfield who's now in the JVM group) suggested I
might try hitting up this alias for some help.
In a nutshell:
* the fantasy games group here at ESPN.com has some pretty serious
issues with memory consumption and (specifically) garbage collection.
* They are looking for someone intimately familiar with the ins and o=
of the Java 1.5 / 1.6 garbage collector... a certified GC bad-a** :)
* They are more than willing to PAY for this expertise since it's alm=
certainly not something that can be solved in simple back & forth ema=
thread or 30 minute phone call - except for the Sun JDK, all of our
stuff is home grown Java code.
* They are somewhat leary of who might show up if they were to just g=
to professional services :)
So I thought I might see if your team can or knows of someone who can
provide assistance. Please let me know if this is something any of yo=
might be of assistance with.
Thanks for your time and feel free to call me at the work # below if
that works better for you.
