Fill the Glass: Measuring Software Performance

I had the delight of participating on a “Fill The Glass” webinar (#FillTheGlass). Fill the Glass is a new style of, technology related, webinar series by Cary Millsap.

Cary Millsap is a developer, teacher, writer, and consultant who has been a part of the Oracle ecosystem since 1989. His new webinar series about Oracle and related technologies is going to be little different than the usual hello-slide-show-Q&A-bye routine. These shows are going to include conversation. Our aim is to bring the technology to life. Our guests will of course talk about the problems they’re solving and how they solve them, but our conversations will include discussions about their ideas, their motives, their tools, …even their careers. Cary likes to find the twist, a way of perceiving a situation that you might not have thought of. Join us to learn, improve your career, and have some fun.

In this episode of Fill the Glass, Cary and I discuss techniques for measuring software performance. Some of the topics include instrumenting your code, measuring workloads, SQL Plan Management (SPM) and code development ideas in general that you may be able to apply to your projects.
Although the application in the video was built with Oracle Application Express, the concepts are universal to programming. At the very least, very current and apropos for Oracle developers of any kind.

The recording is now available here:
