Running large web services, typically depends on too many layers of technology, and those end up by requiring deep skills in troubleshooting. We need to tackle slow web sites, monitor CPU and memory usage to finally detect dead objects lying around. Critical situations finally happen and long nights become recurrent. Parsing apps and server logs, but not enough to find out what was wrong. In this session, we'll see how effective telemetry, and a profiler, can be to your business, your skills and finally your personal life.
In the push to retire Windows XP, application compatibility was all about "getting it over the line," particularly for those who were trying to finish up before the end of support this past April.

As we propose to bring connectivity to everyday objects, we also propose to change the way we live, work and play. But not only. Much of the promise of the internet of things lies in using everyday objects to making visible data we chose ignore: our environment, our habits, our health, our effect on others.

This talk will discuss what that road means for people and businesses and future public policy.
