Get rid of your performance problems and memory leaks! was originally created as a support site for Jack Shirazi's book Java Performance Tuning. It immediately became the the premier site for all types of Java performance tuning information, because of the huge amount of information available from the site. After a couple of years, we moved the site on to become more of a magazine, and we now provide many interesting columns as well as huge amounts of information covering all aspects of Java Performance.

About Jack Shirazi

Jack started out as a theoretical physicist, but moved to the field of bioinformatics after he failed to discover a workable faster-than-light propulsion system. As a researcher at Cancer Research UK, a large European cancer research organization, Jack published papers on applying knowledge management to the field of protein structure prediction. Jack also contributed to the development of several core modules in Perl version 5, and developed several useful non-core modules, notably the EventServer which was used as a core for a number of perl based products.

Since then, Jack has worked on Java projects for various industries including finance, communications and travel. Jack's focus on performance tuning resulted in his comprehensive and influential book Java Performance Tuning and the website which he founded and continues to run. Jack was elected by Sun Microsystems (now Oracle) to be one of about one hundred and fifty Java Champions worldwide in recognition of his Java performance expertise and for his efforts in educating the Java community about Java performance techniques.
