Velocity 2016 - Santa Clara, California: Video Compilation

Video Description

Velocity 2016 Santa Clara was a an intense exposition of how to build, test, maintain, protect, and scale fast, resilient, and highly available websites and apps. 122 speakers from companies like Etsy, Twitter, Cisco, New Relic, Pivotal, SOASTA, Verizon, Akami, Chef, Datadog, Google, Facebook, Fastly, Microsoft, PagerDuty, and more offered their hard-earned, lessons-learned expertise across 22 keynotes, 14 tutorials and 69 sessions.

There were DevOps sessions on building Jenkins based continuous delivery pipelines, bash script testing, DDoS attacks, ChatOps, and best methods for debugging distributed systems. There were infrastructure talks on microservices and Docker containers with close looks at autopiloting, AppSec, monitoring and troubleshooting, and Redis NoSQL deployments. Web performance sessions covered topics like methods for policing ads and 3rd party content, new APIs from the W3C Web Performance Working Group, HTTP/2’s ability to dramatically reduce image load times, and the use of machine learning to predict conversion and bounce data. Not enough? There was more. Organizational optimization sessions provided guidance on issues ranging from employee burnout and running blame-free retrospectives with measuring the right things sessions offering explanations of RUM monitoring, Nagios scaling, and a new method of measuring web performance called continuity monitoring.
