I’ve been looking at system performance issues for, well, a very long time..
Early in my career I was a C/assembler programmer, database developer etc., midstream switching to operations for awhile and, for the last decade or so, find myself on the fence. Somewhere in the middle; what we now call “Systems Engineering” or “Site Reliability Engineering”. Actually, I like to specialize a bit more in something called “Performance Engineering”..
