So you have a Rails web app and life is good. Or maybe it's not so good: maybe your web app is slower than you'd like? Maybe your users are complaining? Or worse yet, maybe you don't even know whether it's fast or slow? If you're like the rest of us, this workshop is for you.
We build New Relic and we're going to show you how to investigate and solve web app performance problems using New Relic but this isn't really a New Relic sales pitch (it's just the tool we know how to use). Of course we're going to talk about the usual problems and their common solutions, but we're also going to talk about some of the less common causes of performance anxiety.
We will practice identifying issues, explore strategies to attack them, and putting them into practice. After this workshop you will be armed to attack and improve your own wonderful, but perhaps slow, web app.
