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.
In 2013 the Phoenix Project by Gene Kim, Kevin Bahr and George Spafford sparked the next phase of DevOps transformations. 6 years later Gene Kim (@RealGeneKim) is back with The Unicorn Project, A Novel about Developers, Digital Disruption, and Thriving in the Age of Data.
Developer Productivity is a key focus point of the story in the book and is what Gene has learned from different companies in the last years about. Good engineering companies put their best resources in developer productivity as it benefits every developer and allows them to use their best energy to provide business value instead of solving puzzles. Gene lets us in on his day at Etsy as well as the story from Nokia and the reason they moved away from Symbian – both stories that touch on developer productivity!
