Performance as a feature

Matt Warren joins us to talk about your lack lustre performance:

Starting with the premise that "Performance is a Feature", this session will look at how to measure, what to measure and how get the best performance from your .NET code.

We will look at real-world examples from the Roslyn code-base and StackOverflow (the product), including how the .NET Garbage Collector needs to be tamed!

We will also have a nugget by member John Kilmister on the 13K games :)

    John K:
    - just loved this talk, full of anecdotes & interesting stories. I think John's[masked]K entry could be the subject of a great main talk. It's easy to create work for other people, but here goes anyway: I guess John could keep a very loose diary during the competition month. This could turn into an engaging 90 min talk that occasionally pauses to invite answers to: "does anybody think this was the correct decision", "does anybody foresee any problems with this strategy". I'm sure such an innovative presentation could get John in front of a range of NxtGen-style meetups.

    - Thanks to Matt for sharing his well-research knowledge. Whilst the world is racing towards web, lots of development is still in desktop based L.O.B. apps. I think it may have been beneficial to start with finding the proportion of desktop vs web devs, then tailoring advice/tips accordingly. Oh, and it's a shame you didn't get to show off APM- so we can see how the other side lives :-)

      Yes - I like that one. I originally heard when an aged old colleague said "Statistics? Well, statistically speaking, I have a higher than average number of legs".
