Am 14. Januar 2015 lädt die Java Usergroup Berlin-Brandenburg und die Díaz & Hilterscheid Unternehmensberatung GmbH zur Java Performance Klink mit Andreas Grabner von Dynatrace ein.

Die Java Performance Clinic

Here is the deal! If you are responsible for performance and quality of a software application or are just interested in discussing and sharing thoughts about how to build better software then join me. This event is not about talking hot air - its about Hands-On learning and doing.

Agenda: Check out my slides online that I used at a recent Performance Clinic in Potsdam, Germany:

I walk you through the most common performance problems in the Frontend (Web, Mobile, Rich Client), Backend (Web Server, App Server, Database, …​) and talk about common deployment mistakes. After these individual sections we go into a Hands-On mode where I show you how to analyze these things on your own Application. Thats why we hope that you BYOA

Detailed Schedule:

  • 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm: Walk Through of Slides and presentation of my best practices

  • 6:30 pm - Open End: Hands-On on your Applications

BYOA: Bring Your Own Application and learn how to identify the typical performance hotspots in your Java, .NET, PHP, Web or Mobile Android or iOS Application using free available tools such as dynaTrace, JMeter, YSlow, PageSpeed, …​

BYPP: Bring Your PurePath and we are going to analyze your performance data and find the problems.

What’s in for you? If you are new to performance I will give you a quick crash course on software performance. The goal for me is that you will leave this hands-on workshop with a handful of PurePaths, Log files, Graphs, Metrics and New Ideas that you can show and share with your peers after you return to your office the next day. I will show you how to analyze performance, scalability and functional problems in your application – whether it is a problem in the web front-end, on the application server or in the data access layer.

Bonus: Attendees of this workshop will receive an extended free trial license for dynaTrace to apply what they learned in the workshop in your environment at home as well as a dynaTrace APMaaS account.


Is this really for free? Why a donation?

Yes! It is free but we want people to donate €5 to show a sign of commitment. If you show up we will return that donation to you. If you don’t show up we will donate the money to a charity!

Is this a marketing event from Dynatrace?

No! Everybody has to work somewhere and for me that is Dynatrace (check out my bio for more details). The important thing is that I am a performance enthusiast and want to continue educating the developer, tester and ops community on building and running better apps. I’ve blogged and presented best practices over the years. Of course - it requires tools to follow these best practices. But we will stick with free available tools without you needing to spend a dime or having to fear about follow up emails from sales or marketing.

Whats the detailed Schedule?

I will give a general introduction to Performance Management. After that its going to be hands-on. "Walk-Ins" are allowed any time.

What do I need to bring?

Your App! Just bring your laptop with the application on it that you want to performance analyse. If you dont feel comfortable bringing a real life app bring a similar sample app so we show you how it is done. Alternatively we can also set this up remotely if you have remote access to your system in the office

Your Performance Reports!

If you can’t bring your application feel free to bring your performance reports. Whether this is log files, load testing reports or any data from your APM tools.

What do I need to prepare?

Tools! We are going to use some free tools in the performance space. It helps if you register and download tools such as dynaTrace, New Relic, AppDynamics, JMeter, YSlow, PageSpeed. It is also ok to bring any other tools that you use on your day-to-day basis. The main product I will focus on is the dynaTrace Free Trial (because I am part of the engineering team). If you dont get to register before the event I will bring the tool with me and hand it out.
