Operational visibility is more than simply monitoring and graphing. In this tutorial, we will discuss theory and execution of this key pillar of operational excellence, from business requirements to user story to collection, analysis, storage, and visualization. Additionally, we will be sharing our easily-deployed, open source OpsViz stack, available for AWS CloudFormation, accessible by GitHub.

Consul by HashiCorp is an open source tool for service discovery, monitoring, and infrastructure configuration. Simple configuration and powerful features like high availability, failure detection, and multi-datacenter awareness make Consul a great solution for organizations of all sizes trying to scale their monitoring.

In the blink of an eye, MediaMath’s digital marketing systems host real-time auctions and serve ads across the world to the tune of 2.1 million QPS. And we are building the next generation of these systems on Go. In this talk, we’ll explore how to maximize Go’s performance, how to use Go to handle hundreds of thousands of requests per second, and why Go is a game-changer for building services.

You've read everything on Hacker News. You've deployed a bunch of apps on Heroku. You've signed up for as many stats and APM services as you know of. You have everything you need to scale if your startup blows up, right? In this talk, we'll walk through some of the lessons we've learned the hard way growing 13x over the past 9 months.

The last decade belonged to virtual machines; the next one belongs to containers. It is time to look at new ways to deploy and manage applications at scale. CoreOS is a new Linux distribution designed specifically for application containers and running them at scale. This talk will examine all the major components of CoreOS (etcd, fleet, docker, systemd) and how these components work together.

Writing fast JavaScript code is not only microbenchmarks. Understanding the JavaScript engine will reveal the typical code patterns favored for maximum execution speed (short function, fixed object shape, profile-guided, garbage minimization). In addition, it is also important to consider other strategies such as sampling and tracing.
