“Performance is a Feature” Cary Millsap 2014-01-30 Dallas Oracle Users Group presentation
31 January 2014
Audience: application developers, database administrators, performance analysts, project leaders, system owners.
To many software developers, designers, and architects “performance” is a side-effect, ...an afterthought of designing and building proper features like “book an order” or “look up a book by author.” But great performance at scale doesn't happen by accident. The first step is to know what performance is: it is the answer to the question, “What have people been experiencing?” Knowing what people experience when they use your software is possible only if you treat performance as a proper feature, a feature you analyze, design, build, test, and maintain. This session explains the steps that will get you started.
