Some Notes!

Hi Everyone,

I had a great time at the meetup tonight, Mehdi showed us some really impressive real world examples of what happens when performance and availability tank, and how to catch these issues with good monitoring.  Here at Wayfair we have been Catchpoint customers for over a year and we can't say enough good stuff about the product.  Mehdi also raffled off two Amazon Kindles and Yottaa contributed two O'Reilly books, so we had four lucky winners tonight! I will post his slides as soon as I get them. 

I want to thank Correlsense again for providing the pizza for the Meetup, they have been consistently sponsoring the group for the past few months, which makes the meetups possible and keeps everyone happy.  

On another note, the next WPOChat on Twitter is coming up this Monday at 3PM Eastern Time, so I hope you can all attend.  It's only an hour long, and you get high quality information from WPO experts from all over the world.  See all of the details here:

Finally, Wayfair has recently launched an engineering blog which can be found at  I wrote one of the first posts about the performance of our sites, which I hope you all find interesting:

I hope everyone has a good night, and I'll see you on October 5th!
