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.
When moving to microservice architectures its time to re-think continuous delivery. Just as many software services rely on a core data analytics engine to make better automated decisions we need to apply the same for continuous delivery. We can assess the risk of every microservice deployment based on data from production and the desired change of configuration. We can assess the potential blast radius and mitigate it through modern delivery options such as blue/green, canaries or feature flags.
Tracy Ragan, Creator & CEO of DeployHub, CDF board member and DevOps Institute Ambassador shares her thoughts on why we need to move to smarter data-driven delivery pipelines. Tracy (@TracyRagan) gives us insights into why not every microservice is created equal and what approaches we can take to better control updates that contain multiple microservice updates.
PurePerformance Cafes are short interviews with practitioners and thought leaders from around the globe. We found it a great way to get introduced to a new topic or just learn what others are doing in their day-to-day job to contribute to better quality and high performing software.
