In this first session of a multipart series,
John McCaffrey will cover the best ways to monitor and analyze the performance aspects of a modern Rails app. We'll cover the tools and techniques for analyzing page performance, where your rails app spends its time, which queries are slowest or most time consuming, and how to keep an eye on your application's performance over time. We'll also go over how performance affects the development, design, user experience, the bottom line, and how these analysis techniques can be used to make a case for tackling some of your performance issues. John asks that everyone fill out a very brief
survey before the meeting so that he can better adapt his presentation to everyone. John McCaffrey serves as Project Manager/Team Lead at
Pathfinder Development. John has almost a decade of web development experience, lots of Java/Struts/SpringMVC, and now he absolutely loves Ruby/Rails. His professional experience includes big companies like CSC, Kraft, and Quaker/Pepsi, as well as smaller companies like Adeptia, G2Switchworks, and Pathfinder. John specializes on front-end development and testing.
