Jim Waldo, Distinguished Engineer, Sun Microsystems Labs

Seminar Title:

Parallelism, Distribution, and Scaling On-line Games

Abstract: This talk will discuss Project Darkstar, a server-side framework
for massive multi-player on-line games (MMOs). Darkstar provides a highly
concurrent, distributed infrastructure with a programming model that allows
the game programmer to write as though he or she was working on a single
thread running on a single machine. This can only be done by carefully
restricting the programming model; we will discuss the model and how we use
that model to hide complexity while giving scalability.
