Cliff Click is the CTO and cofounder of 0xdata, a firm dedicated to creating a new way to think about web-scale math and real-time analytics. Cliff wrote his first compiler when he was 15 (Pascal to TRS Z-80), although his most famous compiler is the HotSpot Server Compiler (the Sea of Nodes IR). He helped Azul Systems build an 864-core pure-Java mainframe that keeps GC pauses on 500 GB heaps to under 10 ms and worked on all aspects of that JVM. Previously, Cliff worked on HotSpot at Sun Microsystems. He is at least partially responsible for bringing Java into the mainstream. He is the author of about 15 patents, has published many papers about HotSpot technology, and is regularly invited to speak at industry and academic conferences. Cliff holds a PhD in computer science from Rice University.
