At Velocity SC 2015, these are the talks that I'd really like to see if only I could be in more than one room at a time.
Wednesday, May 27
09:00 Service Workers by Pat Meenan
Exciting new technology currently available in Chrome
11:00 Building performant SPAs by Chris Love
Since we're doing a lot of SPA work for boomerang at the moment, I'm very interested in performance best practices for SPAs
13:30 Metrics Metrics Everywhere by Tammy & Cliff
Tammy and Cliff are my colleagues at SOASTA, and this talk is based on a lot of the data that I've been working to collect over the last few years. I'm torn between this and the next one also at the same time.
13:30 Self-healing systems by Todd & Matt
Todd & Matt are also colleagues at SOASTA, and this talk is about the infrastructure we've developed to collect the metrics that are covered in the talk that Tammy & Cliff are doing. I really wish I could be at both.
15:30 Linux Perf Tools by Brendan Gregg
Always interested in tools to analyse linux performance.

I haven't listed the keynotes here because that's the only track at the time and I don't need to choose which room to be in.

LinkedIn uses a modified version of boomerang, and I'm keen to know what they've done.

Very interesting topic, something that I'm very interested in.
