Why do some people have a passion for performance? How do experienced performance engineers think? What drives them? How do you modularize and test large applications in the biggest companies in the world? What works and what doesn’t? Find out when we talk with Mike Hawkins, someone with decades of experience in the field.

Performance engineering is crucial for making applications faster and more efficient, and it requires proper targets, monitoring, and thorough testing to minimize risk and maximize cost savings. Having a passion for what you do is also important.

Video insights on Performance Engineering Passion

🎯 The challenge to make applications faster and more efficient is a bold and ambitious goal that requires determination and innovation.
πŸ”„ Performance engineering touches many areas, not just load testing, and it’s important to have proper targets and monitoring for both the application as a whole and individual components.
🎯 The lack of SLAs for business critical applications dependent on third party API calls is an Achilles’ heel for many organizations.
πŸŽ“ The need for formal education and certification in performance engineering to bridge the gap between performance and business impact.
πŸ”„ Testing complex applications with lots of moving parts requires thorough performance testing and maximum coverage.
πŸ” More tests and more coverage means less risk and more money back in your pocket, basically, because you’re able to get more done.
πŸ”„ The idea of horizontal scalability testing for 20 years shows the importance of understanding performance characteristics and optimizing them before scaling.
πŸ’° There is a direct correlation with dollars and cents in performance engineering, even in the modern cloud.
