How I learnt to stop worrying and embrace my inner Dinosaur

Just because someone is a dinosaur – it doesn’t mean that their knowledge and skills are less applicable. Regardless of the technology or methodology

After a few years of doing something, it seems natural to look back on when you first started and think about the things that you wish you’d known. Looking back all of the things I wish I had known 14 years ago are foundational. I wish I had understood queuing theory and how to apply it. I wish I had understood the value of building your own monitoring and parsing solutions rather than relying totally on tools – performance testing tools in particular, and I wish I had had the skills to bring those things together.
In this presentation we’ll cover off a few engagements where the things I wish I had known way back when have really uncovered problems, and how that foundational knowledge is just as useful now in the world of the cloud as they ever have been.

Since its beginning, the Performance Advisory Council aims to promote engagement between various experts from around the world, to create relevant, value-added content sharing between members. For Neotys, to strengthen our position as a thought leader in load & performance testing.
