To many software developers, designers, and architects "performance" is a side-effect, afterthought of designing and building proper features like "book an order" or "look up a book by author." But great performance at scale doesn't happen by accident. The first step is to know what performance *is*: it is the answer to the question, "What have people been *experiencing*?" Knowing what people experience when they use your software is possible only if you treat performance as a proper feature, a feature you analyze, design, build, test, and maintain. This session explains the steps that will get you started.

Objective 1: Help architects, developers, DBAs understand why performance instrumentation is important.

Objective 2: Describe a detailed specification for the performance instrumentation feature.

Objective 3: Show examples of how to implement my specification for the Performance Feature.
