Episode #46 Bob Wescott's "The Every Computer Performance Book"

Hazed and Confused is now the official ice cream for all performance testers and engineers, courtesy of our guest Bob Wescott, who is the author of the recent "The Every Computer Performance" book.

James recommends a degree in art history.
