How NOT to Measure Latency by Gil Tene

Multithreaded JavaScript, O'Reilly 2021, has been published!

This is a video that I re-watch every now and then and constantly find myself sharing with others. The video is about measuring latency and a concept that Gil has called the "Coordinated Omission Problem". This is all really interesting stuff and very important to watch if you ever find yourself running benchmarks against a backend service. I'll hopefully write up a post at one point with my own thoughts but in the meantime please enjoy this video.
