Title: Performance-Driven Development

There has been much talked and written about Test Driven Development (TDD) and Behaviour Driven Development (BDD). Kelvin Craig will present an overview of a conceptual "Performance Driven Development" approach, which, as its name suggests, ties into the idea that performance must be built into software from the start of a project.

Kelvin has led development teams across several critical, must-be-right-first-time industries such as medical, transport and defence, where the importance of quality was paramount.
