Techniques and Tools For a Coherent Discussion About Performance in Complex Architectures

Most applications today have separate networked services measuring in the tens to hundreds; especially with the growing popularity of micro services. Crossing the boundary between these services often means a change in team and even a change in programming languages. In this session will discuss the challenges this presents, why it is important to have a single engineering conversation about performance and how we can accomplish this.
