Andreas (aka Andi) Grabner and Brian Wilson are veterans of the digital performance world. Combined they have seen too many applications not scaling and performing up to expectations. With more rapid deployment models made possible through continuous delivery and a mentality shift sparked by DevOps they feel it’s time to share their stories. In each episode, they and their guests discuss different topics concerning performance, ranging from common performance problems for specific technology platforms to best practices in development, testing, deploying and monitoring software performance and user experience. Be prepared to learn a lot about metrics.
Andi & Brian both work at Dynatrace, where they get to witness more real-world customer performance issues than they can TPS report at.
Adrian Hornsby (@adhorn) has dedicated his last years helping enterprises around the world to build resilient systems. He wrote a great blog series titled “Patterns for Resilient Architectures” and has given numerous talks about this such as Resiliency and Availability Design Patterns for the Cloud at DevOne in Linz earlier this year.
Listen in and learn more about why resiliency starts with humans, why we need to version everything we do, why default timeouts have to be flagged, how to deal with retries and back-offs and why every distributed architect has to start designing systems that provide different service levels depending on the overall system health state.
