Learn how error monitoring with Sentry closes the gap between the product team and your customers. With Sentry, you can focus on what you do best: building and scaling software that makes your users’ lives better.

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.





What’s the best way to boost the efficiency of your product team and ship with confidence? Check out this ebook to learn how Sentry's real-time error monitoring helps developers stay in their workflow to fix bugs before the user even knows there’s a problem.
