Session Level: 200
You’ve had an awesome idea, and your prototype has legs. But what if you’re a hit? In focusing on new solutions we often lose track of the vital issue of performance. For performance many think “that’s a good problem to have, we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it” – but how does that reflect on your new endeavor or brand, or your first check in the company Git repo, when the application code doesn’t scale to handle the load?
In this session, we will discuss how to use performance monitoring data to optimize your code and how to use that data to optimize your infrastructure and configuration. You’re learning from the best, we build landing pages to support our clients’ super bowl ads, talk about high traffic!
