One thought on “About

  1. Hi,

    I wrote a book on doing performance work (load testing, capacity planning, etc.) to give back what I was given during my 25+ year career in performance work. It covers all the things that are (and will always be) true about performance regardless of the year or the technology.

    It’s called “The Every Computer Performance Book” It’s available on Amazon and iTunes (links below) for about nine bucks. It has gotten excellent reviews. There is a blog to go along with the book at: rwwescott.wordpress.com I was hoping you would include it in your Links section below and possibly mention the book on your site.
