I Feel the Need for Web Page Speed

We demand high performance web applications. To build them we need every single piece of information to help us find actionable ways of speeding up our applications. In this session learn how to use the performance API together with common browser performance tooling to determine down to the method level how long our pages take to perform operations. We’ll also touch briefly on instrumenting up popular frameworks such as React & Angular, running performance checks on mobile browsers, and free open source tools that can help you diagnose and monitor performance.

To retry or not to retry? That is the question.

So your system gets a failure calling a downstream dependency. What do you do? Should you retry? How often? Should we wait? How long?

While those are all good questions, they often miss the point. And if you stop at those questions, 'interesting' system behaviors can result, often leading to overwhelmed systems and downtime or poor performance and unresponsiveness.

Starting with real world analogies, we'll tease out principles that can be applied in most any situation.
