Diving into the Wreck: a postmortem look at real-world performance


Speaker: Geoff Gerrietts

As a young engineer interested in performance, much of the advice I saw on performance management focused on algorithms and rules of thumb.

We will talk about how to recognize them, what causes them, and how to resolve them.
