Chris Bailey (IBM)

The fundamental performance characteristics of Node.js, along with the improvements driven through the community benchmarking workgroup, makes Node.js ideal for highly performing micro-service workloads. Translating that into highly responsive, scalable solutions however is still far from easy. This session will discuss why Node.js is right for micro-services, introduce the best practices for building scalable deployments, and show you how to monitor and profile your applications to identify and resolve performance bottlenecks.
