Presentation: lies we tell our code

At Whitepages’ Seattle Scalability Meetup:

From dev to deploy, we’re constantly lying to our code. We lie about the systems, networks, storage, RAM, CPU and other resources that are critical to our application performance. Some of these lies protect applications from each other, and some even improve performance. Others, however, decrease performance and create barriers to productivity. In this session, Joyent Product Manager Casey Bisson will delve into the “dishonest” relationship we all have with our code and show why the lies we tell can both help and hurt us. Attendees will learn which white lies to keep on telling and, conversely, where to start being honest with your code.


The talk and slide deck earned high praise:

I’m honored to have presented this to a packed room at LinuxCon.
