For Developers Only: ScyllaDB Announces P99 CONF Speaker Lineup

Technical experts will share high-performance strategies at inaugural developer event

PALO ALTO, CALIF. July 27, 2021 ScyllaDB, makers of the high-performance ScyllaDB NoSQL database, today announced speakers for P99 CONF, October 6-7, 2021, a vendor-neutral developer summit dedicated to low-latency, high-performance design.

P99 CONF is a free virtual event that will draw practitioners from around the world for two days of talks, lounges and roundtable discussions by engineers, for engineers, featuring leading developers of top projects — from Linux kernel maintainers, to Rust, Java and golang and ending with Kubernetes, databases and streaming projects.

“Latency is one of the defining challenges of modern application design, but too often it doesn’t get the attention it deserves until it’s already become a problem,” said Datadog engineer Glauber Costa. “P99 CONF gives developers a chance to hear from colleagues in the trenches about innovative approaches they won’t learn anywhere else.”

Conference sessions will explore creative solutions to the complex challenges of real-time applications, with deep dives on topics including:

  • Development: Techniques for programming languages and operating systems
  • Architecture: High-performance distributed systems, design patterns and frameworks
  • Performance: Capacity planning, benchmarking and performance testing
  • DevOps: Observability and optimization to meet SLAs
  • Use Cases: Low-latency applications in production and lessons learned

Among the speakers at this year’s event:

  • Brian Martin, Twitter, on high-performance refactoring in Rust
  • Tejas Chopra, Netflix, on object compaction in the cloud
  • Orit Wasserman, Red Hat, on Ceph object storage for NVMe and persistent memory
  • Glauber Costa, Datadog, on designing for optimal Rust performance
  • Yarden Shafir, Crowdstrike, on optimizing Windows I/O
  • Waldek Kozaczuk on optimizing stateless and serverless apps in the cloud

“P99 CONF will be both highly technical and extremely practical,” said Dor Laor, CEO of ScyllaDB. “We can promise no product pitches, no entry-level overviews, no manager-talk — nothing but insights and techniques developers can put into action right away. We are proud and humbled to have P99 CONF host such a wide range of technologies that we appreciate. We’re excited to offer a venue for developers to expand their knowledge.”
