SOUG: Cary Millsap

We (SOUG) have the fortunate pleasure of hosting Mr. Cary Millsap.

Perhaps you've heard of him?

The topic is Thinking Clearly About Performance.

Here's the abstract:

Creating high-performance as an attribute of complex software is extremely difficult business for developers, technology administrators, architects, system analysts, and project anagers. However, by understanding some fundamental principles, performance problem solving and prevention can be made far simpler and more reliable. This paper describes those principles, linking them together in a coherent journey covering the goals, the terms, the tools, and the decisions that you need to maximize your application’s chance of having a long, productive, high-performance life. Examples in this paper touch upon Oracle experiences, but the scope of the paper is not restricted to Oracle products.

Here's Mr. Millsap's Bio (note the inclusion of the word "teacher", my favorite description):
