Scaling Languages, Companies, and AI with Compilers
Cliff Click is engineers' engineer. He developed the most widely used compiler, Java HotSpot, that helped Java take over the world. And then Cliff applied the compiler ideas to AI, lifting operations on a cluster.
Cliff is a speaker and moderator By the Bay, where he ran a training on advanced topics in software engineering. So he scales others.
HotSpot was a radical innovation. And so is using compiler ideas for big data and AI.
We are starting Scaled series on Companies, People and Software with Cliff -- to learn how he scaled all three, starting with himself.
