Mike Mallete discusses the why performance appraisals fail and what can be done instead.
Andrew Crump shows how to deploy and scale applications written in a variety of languages (including Clojure and Erlang) to Cloud Foundry.
Petar Maymounkov introduces Go Circuit, a system that reduces the human development and sustenance costs of complex massively-scaled systems nearly to the level of their single-process counterparts.
Hosted by Erik Meijer, who runs the Cloud Programmability Team at Microsoft, the panelists answer questions on C/C++ and Java performance, contrasting the virtues of native vs. managed code.
