Inspired by this talk at Velocity 2011 (http://velocityconf.com/velocity2011/public/schedule/detail/17776) the guys from Lonelyplanet.com (the online companion to the Lonely Planet travel books and now part of the BBC) decided to apply these principals to their own website.
This presentation will offer a "warts and all" view of trying to use open-source tools like Statsd, Graphite (and their own bespoke Ruby Gem they build for the data collection) to move web engineering from "guess work" to "science".
1830 - registration and drinks
