I recently had the honor of talking about distributed tracing at CraftConf 2015. Wonderful conference, wonderful crowd and the talk was well received. Bset summary: “Worth watching, even if you are a vegan.” Broadcast live streaming video on Ustream
I’m flying back from a wonderful event: Strata. I gave a talk there called “Esperwhispering” that seemed to pique many people’s interest. This is the stuff you do when a database just doesn’t have the horsepower to answer your questions fast enough. Esper is an excellent, open-source CEP tool. It’s a shame its GPL, but hey… you can’t win ‘em all. We use esper to power many things internally at OmniTI and our clients and Esper is the code CEP engine we use to make sure Circonus custsomers know when “things go wrong.

This conference was assembled to answer one question: "How do I build systems that perform well and scale to meet demand?" That may seem like a simple question that someone has asked before, but I am an engineer and, as such, use an engineering definition of "

Aside from a camera angle that is quite odd and very poor picture quality, the interview is really nice. While I typically don’t watch or listen to my own media events (it’s eerie), in this interview I actually enjoyed listening from start to end because it is a fairly fun list of wild and crazy things we to at OmniTI in unconventional depth.
