The October 11 edition of the Vivit Performance Engineering Special Interest Group which was an exciting session. This discussion focused on Performance Engineering education.


Performance Engineering is relevant and compelling, yet is still misunderstood in some circles. This session addressed the primary challenges around education; who what where and how.


During the session we discussed:


  1. Meticulously sequenced learning
  2. Animated diagrams (visual cheat sheets)
  3. Narrated videos reveal animations
  4. Runnable scripts of commands in sequence
  5. Reference to other training.
