The brutal truth about digital performance engineering and operations

Pure Performance

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.

The SLO Dilemma: Slight Reliability Discussions with Stephen Townshend

For some out there SLOs (Service Level Objectives) are the silver bullet to building and operating reliable software. But nothing is as shiny on the inside as it looks on the outside.

In this episode we invited Stephen Townshend, former Performance Engineer now converted to Site (Slight) Reliability. Stephen (@the_kiwi_sre) has experienced the tough side of establishing SLOs within an organization. It’s a constant battle between focusing on reliability and new features and a lack of change in culture.

Listen in and learn about the 9 pre-requisites for SLOs that Stephen has identified such as: having a certain level of observability, define clear business objectives, define ownership and give autonomy or establishing a blameless culture
