JIT vs AOT Performance With GraalVM

In this session we are going to talk about various aspects of performance, such as peak throughput, startup, memory footprint and more, and how you can optimize your applications for them with GraalVM. GraalVM is a high-performance virtual machine, bringing new performance optimizations for...

Parsing JSON Really Quickly: Lessons Learned

Our disks and networks can load gigabytes of data per second; we feel strongly that our software should follow suit. Thus we wrote what might be the fastest JSON parser in the world, simdjson. It can parse typical JSON files at speeds of over 2 GB/s on single commodity Intel core with full...

High Resolution Performance Telemetry at Scale

One of the most critical aspects of running large distributed systems is understanding and quantifying performance. Without telemetry it is challenging to diagnose performance issues, plan for capacity needs, and tune for maximum efficiency. Even when we have telemetry, the resolution is...

Privacy Architecture for Data-Driven Innovation

Data-driven businesses can no longer treat privacy as strictly a legal compliance-focused discipline. In a post-GDPR world, privacy needs an engineering focus to ensure it is actionable, enforceable and scalable. This talk will discuss how you can set up a privacy architecture to build in...

Quantifying Risk

The FAIR methodology is an emerging standard for measuring information risks. But, it can be intimidating to get started with a risk quantification program, as people may be reluctant to to go beyond Low/Medium/High categories to real numbers. At Netflix, we have introduced risk quantification in...

Mind the Software Gap: How We Can Operationalize Privacy & Compliance

With legislation like GDPR and CCPA, it has become newly urgent for organizations to understand internal and external data flows. In the push towards compliance, software organizations have been discovering just how difficult it is to maintain an up-to-date picture of data inventory and data...

JIT vs AOT Performance With GraalVM

What are the goals you have for the talk?

I want to offer an additional point of view on performance. Performance is something people often talk about but often focus on one or two metrics, and there might be more ways to look at it, and additional opportunities to optimize. We will go through some additional metrics, discuss how they are connected, and how you can optimize...

Parsing JSON Really Quickly: Lessons Learned

What is the work you're doing today?

I work on software performance from what I call a data engineering point of view. These are the kind of problems that interest me. You start with large volumes of data and processing the data itself is the bottleneck or indexing the data or crunching it or whatever you want to do with the data.

High Resolution Performance Telemetry at Scale

What's the goal of the talk?

We're going to talk about the challenges of measuring performance at scale especially in a distributed microservice architecture. A web request is hundreds of milliseconds. Having a lot of traditional telemetry collection happens at much coarser time scales and a lot of that is due to the cost of aggregation and processing those...

Privacy Architecture for Data-Driven Innovation

What is the work you're doing today?

I'm in the field of privacy and security, and I am the person that builds out the central privacy architecture program for major corporations that run highly siloed, highly distributed, highly innovative and very driven by velocity and growth. These businesses are typically created in a way where different parts of the business can...

Quantifying Risk

What is the work you're doing today?

I work as a Detection Engineering lead at Netflix and we have a fairly unique philosophy around how to do detection and response: we call it a SOCless organization. We don't have a large number of people sitting there watching alerts. Instead what happens is each application owner is responsible for their own security, and we help...

Mind the Software Gap: How We Can Operationalize Privacy & Compliance

You were assistant professor at Carnegie Mellon and now you're CEO of a company. What led to that transition?

For the last 10+ years, I'd been going after this problem of how can we build tools to help software teams better understand their software. I had decided that security and privacy was going to be one of the big application domains. The whole time I really tried to keep an eye on what was the best way to make impact building...
