Once per quarter, the LinkedIn Performance Engineering meetup brings together engineers passionate about performance and efficiency from across the San Francisco Bay Area. The meetup is a great way for engineers to meet, share notes, and learn from each other on topics like performance measurements, monitoring, optimizations, and culture.
Last month, we hosted the 2nd LinkedIn Performance Engineering meetup at our Sunnyvale campus. About 100 attendees gathered for three hours after work to network and listen to speakers from Pinterest and LinkedIn talk about performance engineering. Thank you to everyone who attended for asking insightful questions and for helping make new connections. For updates on the next event, please follow the @LinkedInEng Twitter account and join the LinkedIn Performance Engineering group. Looking forward to seeing you all and plenty of new faces next time!
Here’s a short recap of the last meetup.
Keynote talk: “Defining a Performance Roadmap” by Sarah Dapul-Weberman
Sarah is a software engineer at Pinterest, which saw improved user engagement after the company switched to React and made its core webapp faster. This concretized the notion that performance is important for business, and Pinterest recently formed a central performance team dedicated to this issue, which Sarah is a member of. Her keynote talk detailed strategies on how to drive performance culture in a company, which is always a challenge in large organizations. Thank you Sarah for your great insights!
