While Brendan was writing his new book Systems Performance: Enterprise and the Cloud, we filmed some short videos about why he wanted to write a systems performance book, how hard it was to get started, and about a few chapters as he completed them…
Then life became busy and insane (partly because he was writing a book, but not only), and we didn’t shoot anything at all for months. And then, finally, the book was finished.
Many months after that, when the book was finally in print, we launched it at a meetup of BayLISA, where Brendan gave a long talk on all of it, with in-depth look at Chapter 6: CPUs.
The book is also available from Informitin paper, ebook, or a bundle of both!
