MDD: Metrics Driven Development

Moving to a distributed system will solve all your problems and you will be in developer heaven. Right? Not exactly, having hundreds of services doing different things means it’s increasingly difficult knowing where exactly production issues are hiding. In this talk Sam Elamin will relate his real life experience working on a distributed system dealing with £100,000 worth of transactions every hour. Sam will cover monitoring and how to develop your features based on how your customers use your platform and, most importantly, business metrics. Sam will cover how to implement metrics in your application and setting up dashboards to gaining visibility into what is happening in your production system right now. We’ll also go through some helpful techniques to help you convince your domain experts that gaining this insight is invaluable to keeping your competitive advantage. As an extra treat come and see how JUSTEAT time travels in production, using open source software that can be set up in a matter of days!
