Learn how real real-time monitoring is critical for DevOps. Because you can't build what you can't see.

In this talk at the 2013 JVM Language Summit, Oracle's Aleksey Shipilev talks benchmarking, that necessary evil. Shipilev addresses the basic questions, like what is a benchmark? He then explains microbenchmarking, and how software performance engineering is different from software engineering. Shipilev explains how software performance engineering is more of a natural science, with experiments, whereas vanilla software engineering is more of a formal science. See the video of the presentation and slides below.
