Presentation Summary

Rapid and runaway success is the best way to expose all of the gaps, rough edges and pain points in your back end services. Under live-site pressure to fix issues, making the crucial set of engineering choices and investments can be challenging.  This session will take a hands-on walk through scaling a representative back-end application (written with .NET Core and Kubernetes on Azure) from hundreds to hundreds of thousands of requests per second, illustrating data, techniques, and common performance barriers from real customer deployments.
