Mature Optimization by Carlos Bueno
Tuesday, September 3, 2013 from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM (PDT)
383 Rhode Island Street #300
San Francisco, CA 94107
Too often, performance work is treated as a one-off activity. This talk describes the design and implementation of a layered measurement system for reliably detecting and fixing performance problems. It includes an overview of what the system should look like, pitfalls to avoid, and many tales of triumph and clownish folly.
If you work in operations for Internet or web systems or care about performance this talk is for you.
After 18 years in industry, Carlos Bueno has forgotten more about coding and design than someone with a better memory. Most recently he is a member of Facebook's Performance team, saving the company bags of cash through careful measurement and mature optimization. Carlos is also the author of "Lauren Ipsum", a popular children's novel about computer science.
