Nick Mailer: Performance Pitfalls and Possibilities: Optimising Cloud for the Real World
Big, faster, wider: everyone’s chasing performance in the cloud; but too often, we can end up chasing our own tails.

Sometimes DevOps culture gets lost in the weeds, where it cannot see the wood for the trees when it comes to performance gains.
This talk shows how we can zoom out, and find big performance wins before we start sweating the small stuff. Sometimes, a solution to performance requires technical ingenuity.

At other times, just a simple pull in business focus. Nick distils two decades of performance-wrangling into a 20 minute tour of best practice, telling examples and take-home points that will save aeons of cumulative wasted time, energy and resources in the cloud!

About Nick:
Positive founder and Global CTO, Nick Mailer, is an industry veteran. He has spent over two decades innovating the technologies that now form the basis of global e-commerce and cloud computing.
In the 1990’s, Mailer co-authored the first Internet–in–education book to be published in the UK and ran a number of early tech conferences introducing the power of the Internet to educators and contributed to the Times Education Supplement.
As well as his business leadership, Mailer is an accomplished software engineer, who believes that it is vitally important for senior technical leaders to continue at the coalface.

Mailer continues to publish academic works about technology and philosophy - the area in which he trained. A much in-demand speaker, he speaks at conferences around the world.
