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.
Have you heard about Load Shedding? If not then dive into this discussion with Acacio Cruz, Engineering Director at Google. He walks us through what Google learnt from one of the early outages at Gmail and how he and his team are now applying concepts such as load shedding to avoid disruption of their services despite spikes of load or unpredictable requests. We also discuss SRE (Site Reliability Engineering), how it started and transformed at Google and how we should think about automation, configuration of automation, and automation of automation. For more details – including visuals – we encourage you to watch Acacio’s breakout session from devone.at on YouTube (Load Shedding at Google).
