Performance Driven Development

Andrei Gaspar

Lightning talk - in English

Are you developing a solution where scale is an important factor?

Are you developing a solution on top of a legacy system, which is uncertain how it scales?


The answer to the first question is tricky, because most people tend to overemphasize the importance of scale in their application. However, if you are working on a social application, or you have an unconventional scaling problem to solve like the one we're solving at - this talk might help steer you in the right direction.

If the answer to the second question is yes, performance driven development is a crucial component of your development process. In the B2B world it is quite frequent that you'll be facing the problem of scaling on top of legacy systems. The rewards are high, but the risks are astronomical, and can cost millions to investors.


In this short talk you will learn a modern, DevOps oriented approach to Performance Driven Developent.

You'll be presented with the problems that you are likely to encounter while integrating PDD in your development workflow, as well as solutions to those problems.
