I’ve given many talks over the years at numerous developer, performance, test, financial costing and cloud-focused conferences on performance monitoring, software mirroring and simulation, quality of service (QoS), adaptive control, resource management and activity based costing. Generally, I prefer to speak at meet-ups or in-house workshops designed to inspire engineers and to increase awareness of novel ideas and approaches.

Beyond Reactive – QoS for Apps – µCon 2015

A walkthrough of various QoS for Apps demos performed during the “Beyond Reactive” talk at the µCon 2015 (The Microservices Conference). The talk itself explored various approaches to service request level resource management starting with basic back pressure and moving on to advance reservation-based quality of service (QoS) and adaptive control execution (ACE) valves.
