📺 The recording from my @P99CONF talk about continuous performance regression testing with #JfrUnit is up now!— Gunnar Morling 🌍 (@gunnarmorling) October 8, 2021
Shout-out to @PeterCorless and crew for organizing this excellent event, one of the best virtual conferences I've seen so far 💯!https://t.co/7sMOtbAFpq
The terrific work by the @P99CONF crew has me wondering if virtual conferences might be the future: the platform fostered collaboration, the price was right (free!), and (best of all?) the videos are already out! Viz. my talk from this morning: https://t.co/qWKsqt43nq— Bryan Cantrill (@bcantrill) October 7, 2021
geez #p99conf is just so full of goodness. these are from @Hrexed, thinking about kubernetes like an onion, and what to consider tracking at each layer pic.twitter.com/2yaUWWBp0Q— Rachel Stephens (@rstephensme) October 20, 2022
That was fun! Great questions from the #p99conf crowd https://t.co/bSRedaDN6x— Liz Rice 🐝 💙💛 (@lizrice) October 19, 2022
Well the Cloud is not free and Software Engineering matters even for Enterprises 🙂 Also I am sorry for you If you missed #p99conf 😀. Don't miss it next year. #ScyllaDB pic.twitter.com/pqmE0KijlZ— Bulent Coskun (@bulentcoskun) October 20, 2022
This is why I loved the @P99CONF format. Talks were pre-recorded, discord chat with the speaker during their talk and live Q/A after. Low stress for everyone - easy to get at missed talks.— SMT Solvers (@SMT_Solvers) October 22, 2021
You know it's gonna be a good conference when you start slacking about it with co-workers immediately. #p99conf #scylladb - Measuring Misery was full of great content. pic.twitter.com/3yAHv2qsex— Steven Cole (@steve_the_dm) October 19, 2022
The second day of #p99conf and #scylladb. One of the best tech conference nowadays. By engineers for engineers.— Marcin Rusek (@marcin_rusek) October 20, 2022
I really enjoyed the talks (and hallway track!) yesterday at #p99conf, and I am looking forward to giving my own this morning on the primacy of toolmaking. The talks are prerecorded and registration is free -- so you can join me in heckling myself! https://t.co/MY15cF0S1I— Bryan Cantrill (@bcantrill) October 20, 2022
There’s no other event like this — a conference for engineers by engineers, where we’ll share novel approaches for solving complex problems efficiently and at speed. Vendor and tool agnostic, this conference will be for a highly technical audience only. Your boss’s boss is not invited.
