Metrics, Metrics Everywhere [VIDEO]

O’Reilly has just released the video compilation from the 2015 Velocity conference in Santa Clara, so if you had an all-access pass, you should visit your O’Reilly account to check out all the videos. In my opinion, this was the best Velocity yet, with more great talks than I could squeeze into seeing in three days. I’m looking forward to catching up on all the talks I couldn’t get to.

On that note, I’m happy to be able to share the two-part video from the talk that Cliff Crocker and I gave, Metrics, metrics everywhere (but where the heck do you start). For this talk, Steve Souders tasked us with giving a high-level survey of performance metrics that speak to different stakeholders — from DevOps to CEOs. We did our best. 😉

As always, if you have any questions or comments (we’ll be doing a reprise of this talk at Velocity NY in October, so feedback is welcome!), please let me know in the comments.
